September 2, 2010 (3:33 am) GMT
Kendra Beebe appeared before court on Tuesday, August 31, recalling the 2008 incident where the actor allegedly stabbed her with a knife repeatedly.

The woman who alleges she was stabbed repeatedly by "" star Shelley Malil has taken the stand to testify at his trial. The actor is accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend, Kendra Beebe, in her backyard in California in 2008 and he has pleaded not guilty to charges of premeditated attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and residential burglary.

Beebe, who was stabbed more than 20 times and suffered a punctured lung in the alleged attack, headed to court in Vista, California on Tuesday, August 31 to relive the events. She sobbed as she told the court, "I felt a primal, instinctual, animal fear. He said, 'Kendra, Kendra, Kendra.'... I thought, 'Oh my God, he's going to hug me' and then I thought 'Oh no, he's going to punch me' and then I see this flash of silver and bang, bang, bang. It was just like not real."

Malil faces life in prison if convicted of all charges. The case continues.
