When good dates go bad.....
Norman Escobar probably thought things were progressing nicely with his new girlfriend; after all, he was sharing her bed, so that's a start.
Unfortunately for him, according to a suit he filed that's cited by Courthouse News Service, things went downhill from there.
The girlfriend, the suit says, ignored several threatening messages she had received from an ex-boyfriend who wasn't happy with the new arrangements.
The woman -- called "the defendant" -- had a boyfriend who, the suit says, "had a history of violence with defendant, became enraged that [Escobar] was staying at defendant's home. Throughout the day prior to attacking [Escobar], he sent threatening text messages to defendant threatening to harm [Escobar]."
Still, the lure was strong and Escobar decided to stay the night.
"Despite those text messages, defendant did not properly secure her home when her and [Escobar] went to bed," the suit says. "While asleep in defendant's bed, defendant's ex-boyfriend walked into the home and stabbed [Escobar] several times."
