Los Angeles police arrested Ricardo Augusto Utuy, 34, on Monday for stabbing his co-worker’s three-year-old daughter to death, reports Fox News.
The incident occurred at a garment factory where Utuy worked with the victim’s mother. The woman had brought her daughter to work from daycare and when she stepped away from her work station Utuy allegedly began stabbing the child without warning. The child was taken to hospital where she died.
No motive is known for the attack, but witnesses reported that the man would sometimes talk and laugh to himself.
