Charges brought against man who stabbed ten-year-old


Linda Genborg 2012-04-27

A ten-year-old girl was stabbed in the neck outside her school in Hjällbo, Gothenburg, in February. On Friday, charges were brought against the 28-year-old suspect.

The crime classification is attempted murder.

The girl was attacked and stabbed in the neck outside her school on February 6. According to Göteborgs-Posten, the man "got an idea that he should stab someone". When the man walked out of his apartment building the girl and her friend walked past and he started following them.  

At the schoolyard he stabbed the girl in the neck and ran. With the knife still in her neck the girl was rushed to hospital. She was seriously injured and had to be sedated for several days. The girl is now back in school but has not completely recovered.

The 28-year-old suspect fled to Spain after the attack. He was arrested in his absence. On February 14 he handed himself in to the police Malaga and was returned to Sweden on March 2.

The man admits that he stabbed the girl, but he says he didn’t try to kill her. He has not been able to explain why he wanted to stab someone or why he chose the young girl.
