A 51-year-old woman attacked a three-year-old child on Pekini Street in Tbilisi, stabbing him multiple times in the face, while the boy was walking with his parents and little brother.
The footage that the police acquired from surveillance cameras went viral on social media, showing the family walking on the street peacefully as a strange lady approaches them, stabbing the child’s face multiple times with a knife. After that, cameras show that she wants to attack the second child, but the parents prevented her from doing so.
The boy’s parents say they’ve never seen the attacker before. She managed to escape from the scene. An ambulance delivered the child to a nearby clinic, where he underwent surgery. The clinic said that the condition of a child who has cuts on his nose and cheek is evaluated as moderately severe.
The morning following the incident, police have detained the woman. The woman is now being charged for intentional infliction of grave injury to the health of a minor. If convicted, she will face 7 to 10 years.
