LYNDEN, Wash. – A Lynden man who accused of brutally attacking his girlfriend and wrapping her head in duct tape has pleaded guilty.
According to court records, 28-year-old Joshua Jeklin brought his girlfriend to a storage locker last August where he bound her, beat her and cut her with a knife.
The couple was in the middle of a breakup when the attack occurred.
Jeklin’s two children were waiting in a car outside the storage locker during the attack.
He pleaded guilty last week to assault and kidnapping charges.
Jeklin is facing eight years in prison when he is sentenced.
