The jealous San Mateo thug who forcibly carved the name of his gang on his ex-girlfriend's arm last year before stabbing her friend was sentenced to 11 years in state prison Monday, according to prosecutors.
Victor Javier Enriquez, 22, pleaded no contest to multiple charges, including gang enhancements, connected with two separate attacks on Sept. 24 and Sept. 28, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Tuesday.
The first attack occurred at his ex-lover's workplace, Wagstaffe said. He reportedly became enraged when the ex told him the relationship was over, carving "XIV" into her arm. The Roman numerals represent the 14th letter of the alphabet, N, which stands for Norteño.
Four days later he stabbed a male friend of his ex five times, believing he was her new boyfriend, Wagstaffe said. The friend reportedly survived stab wounds to his shoulder, triceps, torso, thigh and knee, but then declined to identify the gangster to police investigators.
Enriquez had been on probation for felony drug sales at the time of the attacks, prosecutors said.
He has been in custody on no-bail status and received 325 credit to his sentence for the time he's served, prosecutors said.
