A known criminal yelling Islamic slogans was arrested for stabbing a young girl in an unprovoked attack in Sweden this week, according to reports.
The horrifying incident unfolded on Thursday afternoon in the culturally-enriched city of Gothenburg.
Police were called to Brunnsparken, a square in the city center, where they found a 10-year-old girl suffering from serious wounds to her abdomen and "large pools of blood" on the ground, Götesborgs-Posten reports.
A 35-year-old male of "Arab appearance" who reportedly yelled "Allah akbar" before the stabbing was detained by Good Samaritans and taken into custody by authorities.
"The child was bleeding from the stomach, according to reports from the scene," police spokesman Thomas Fuxborg told Swedish media.
"Passing-by youths are said to have brought the perpetrator to the ground, before guards and security guards also intervened. Then there was also an off-duty police officer who intervened."
The victim's 65-year-old grandmother was also injured when she tried to protect the child.
"According to several witnesses I spoke to, the suspect shouted allahu akbar before attacking the girl in [Gothenburg]. However, not confirmed by the police," reported Swedish independent journalist Joakim Lamotte.
The suspect has been convicted of a variety of crimes in Sweden and was incarcerated as recently as last year, but was released early after probation officers claimed he had shown "tangible improvement," Expressen reports.
The victim was rushed to hospital in critical condition. Her current status is unclear at the time of this writing.
An investigation is ongoing.
