On Wednesday at about 3:00 pm the police got a call to 7700 block of Milton Ave in the City of Whittier. A man tried to kill his wife with chainsaw. When officers arrived they saw a woman covered in blood. The wife identified as Gloria Mojica, was transported to a local trauma center and her current condition is unknown. Authorities also recovered a chainsaw at the scene.
"He looked like he was showered in blood," witness Raquel Sanchez said to ABC7.
"They just kept screaming and then I heard what sounded like a chainsaw. I was like what's going on?" witness Darian Pickle said to the channel.
Authorities later said the suspect is the woman's husband and that he attacked her in front of their three young boys. Two of those kids, between ages 5 and 10, were covered in blood.
"We hear a lady scream, 'Help me! Help me! Call 911.' She was going outside and I saw kids with blood and everything," Enrique Avila said to ABC7.
A witness named Robert said he saw Alvarez covered in blood and that Alvarez then got into a vehicle, driving off.
But 10 minutes later, he crashed into another vehicle in Santa Fe Springs. He fled on foot, stole an unattended SUV that was running and hasn't been seen since, according to ABC7.
