Placentia (myfoxla.com) – A 25-year-old gang member on parole who allegedly killed his girlfriend inside her Placentia home while her young children were there was at large Saturday.

Miguel Alexander Vargas of Placentia allegedly stabbed Annette Alvarado, 23, multiple times about 10:30 p.m. Thursday at her home in the 1600 block of La Paloma Avenue near North Van Buren Street, said Placentia police Detective Corinne Loomas.

She was pronounced dead at Placentia Linda Hospital, Loomas said.

Relatives inside the home told investigators the woman was attacked by Vargas.

No one else was injured, including the victim’s 5- and 3-year-old children, Loomas said.

A man at the scene who said he was a cousin of the victim named Rey Perez told City News Service that the couple had children together.

After the attack, Vargas left the home and jumped into the passenger seat of a friend’s car parked outside — a white 2003 Acura, said Placentia police Sgt. Kelley Kenehan.

The two fled, and a short time later, Vargas demanded that his friend get out of the car near La Palma Avenue and Tustin Street in Anaheim and threatened to hurt him if he didn’t, Kenehan said. The friend did as he was told and Vargas drove off, he said.

Vargas is a gang member on parole, said Kenehan. He is Latino, 5 feet 6 inches and about 190 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes, according to police.

He was last seen driving the two-door Acura, California license plate 5SFY351. The car has a distinct large spoiler on its rear, the sergeant added.

Anyone who may have spotted the Acura or Vargas was urged to call police at               (714) 993-8164       .
