A domestic violence incident in which a man broke into a South Pasadena home and started attacking his ex-girlfriend turned deadly when the victim’s mother and sister stabbed and beat him with a golf club, Your Content has learned.

South Pasadena police responded to a report of a domestic violence incident in progress in the 500 block of Five Oaks Drive around 10 a.m., according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Officers arrived to find a home’s front window shattered, with the sound of women screaming coming from inside. Police entered through the window and discovered a man in his 40s stabbed and beaten, NBC 8 reported.

Officials administered aid before the South Pasadena Fire Department responded to the scene and pronounced the man dead, authorities said.

Investigators later learned that the man forced his way into the home by using a brick to break the window, according to the Sheriff’s Department. He then began beating and choking his former partner, officials said. 

That’s when the woman’s mother and adult sister came to her aid, stabbing the man and beating him with a golf club, the Sheriff’s Department said. 

“They were well within their rights to defend her by using deadly force against him,” Lt. Barry Hall with the Sheriff’s Department said.
