Woman kills teenager in Czech school attack

14 October 2014, 23:01

Prague - A woman stabbed a teenage boy to death and injured two other students in an apparently random attack Tuesday at a high school in the Czech Republic, police said.


Spokeswoman Jana Kroutilova said the attack took place Tuesday morning in the central town of Zdar nad Sazavou, 120 kilometers (75 miles) southeast of Prague.

Kroutilova said the victim was a 16-year old boy. She said the 26-year-old female suspect also injured two teenage girls and a police officer before she was arrested.

Regional police chief Radek Malir said the suspect took one of the injured girls hostage but a police unit from a nearby nuclear power plant pacified her with a stun gun.

Police said the suspect was from a different Czech region and it was not immediately clear why she attacked the students.

Malir said police believe the suspect selected the town and the school at random. He declined to confirm a report by Czech public television that the suspect committed a similar attack two years ago in northwestern Czech Republic.

Police declined to reveal further details because of the age of the students.
