Last month, Francisco Leon-Urbalexo, 40, pleaded guilty to attempted murder after he stabbed a man in an unprovoked attack last year in Santa Monica.

On Aug. 13, 2012, Leon-Urbalexo approached 19-year-old Jarred Hill at the intersection of 4th Street and Santa Monica Boulevard, and stabbed him multiple times.

The Mexican national quickly fled the scene.

The victim was black and police believe that race was a motivating factor in the attack, as Leon-Urbalexo was originally charged with a hate crime, in addition to attempted murder.

Customs and Border Protection officers caught up with Leon-Urbalexo earlier this year...

LA Weekly reported:

Though he's from Sonora, Mexico, the suspect was found in Yuma, Arizona, "shortly after the crime" and was arrested there on suspicion of illegally entering the United States, the SMPD says.

After spending ten months in prison in Arizona, he was extradited back to California.

Leon-Urbalexo was sentenced to nine years in prison.
