Woman Stalked for 6 Years, Attacked on Christmas Day in Front of Children
A Brighton Park mom was the victim of an attack, the second this month, by her ex-boyfriend that has been stalking her for 6 years. The unidentified Brighton Park woman was attacked early Christmas morning by Carlos Cazares even though they broke up six-years ago and she recently obtained an emergency order of protection from him.
The unemployed 28-year old male has been continuously harassing the victim and attacked her Christmas when she was returning home with their children, three young daughters. He attacked her with a pocket knife and then attacked her father when he came to her rescue.
The attack took place at the 4400 block of South California Avenue where the victim lives.
Earlier in the month, Cazares was arrested for ‘punching, hitting and spitting’ on this same victim. Cazares is due back in court on January 3, 2012.
