A male suspect from Kosovo has been arrested for stabbing a 7-year-old boy in front of a school in Spain this month, according to reports.
The unprovoked attack unfolded on December 10 in the Chamartín district of Madrid.
A group of schoolchildren was gathered on a sidewalk following a physical education class when the suspect grabbed a third-grader and stabbed him in the neck before fleeing the scene.
On Wednesday, police officers tracked the man down in central Madrid and arrested him.
He was identified as a 32-year-old Kosovar national who had arrived in Spain just eight days before the attack.
Investigators discovered he had a criminal history in the United Kingdom and were able to match his DNA samples to records held there.
"The injured minor remained two days in the ICU and was admitted to the children's ward of the Hospital de La Paz for two more days," El Mundo reports.
"After this event, the National Police reinforced surveillance in the vicinity of the center and the school suspended all external activities, such as excursions and physical education, until the end of the term."
Authorities claim the man suffers from 'mental health issues' and is unable to testify in the case brought against him.
Islam is the dominant religion in Kosovo, with approximately 96% of citizens reportedly identifying as Muslims.
The smash and grab epidemic popularized by Black Lives Matter and marginalized by the Democrat party has come to Austin, Texas.
