Young girl found stabbed in Sweden, woman arrested

STOCKHOLM (AFP) – A young girl was found stabbed outdoors in southern Sweden on Monday and a 35-year-old woman with no apparent connection to her was arrested for attempted murder, police said.

The girl, whom police said was under the age of 15 while daily Aftonbladet reported she was 10, was found with stab wounds to her back in the town of Angelholm by a passer-by, who cared for her until an ambulance arrived.

“She is in serious condition” in hospital, police said.

“There is nothing that currently indicates that the victim and the woman suspect know each other,” police said.
