Sweden: Woman fatally stabbed by 13-year-old


Swedish police have arrested a 13-year-old boy who is suspected of killing a 55-year-old woman during a botched robbery in Kungälv outside Gothenburg.


The incident occurred beneath an E6 highway bridge on May 10. The boy brandished a knife and demanded that the woman hand over her cell phone. When she refused, he stabbed her and then ran away, the Swedish newspaper Expressen reports.


Although she managed to alert police to the situation, the woman later died at the hospital from the injuries she had sustained during the attack.


This week, the 13-year-old boy was arrested for the offense, which was initially classified as attempted murder and gross robbery. The suspect is said to have been under the care of social services.


For some time now, both the Sweden Democrats and the Moderate party have argued that the legal age of punishment should be lowered from 15 to 13-years-old so that crimes like this one can be punishable.
