A Florida man allegedly paid an associate $100 to attack his girlfriend with a knife, leaving her severely injured, then visited her hospital bed, according to court documents.
Orlando police said in a statement that they spotted a rented gold Toyota Prius following the victim on surveillance video before a masked attacker slashed her face in a parking garage on her way to work on April 17.
They tracked the rental to Alexis Colon Colon, 35, who allegedly drove the attacker to a parking garage outside the victim’s job.

He allegedly hired an acquaintance to “hurt a female who upset him,” police said.
He told the associate to “send a message” to the victim, court documents allege, and discussions about how to do so included cutting her face.
Then, on the day of the attack, the knife-wielding assailant allegedly forced his way into her car and slashed her multiple times across the face, according to court documents.
