Toddler decapitated in Taipei: girl, 4, killed in front of mother by random attacker – TomoNews
TAIPEI — A 4-year-old girl was decapitated in front of her mother in an apparent random attack on Monday morning, police said.
An unemployed man, identified as Wang Ching-yu, has been detained in connection with the vicious killing.
The attack occurred at about 11 a.m. when the girl, surnamed Liu, and her mother were on their way to an MRT station in Taipei’s Neihu District to meet the girl’s grandfather and two siblings for lunch.
Liu was riding her bicycle when she was attacked, Taipei City Police Department Neihu Precinct investigation unit head Yang Kun-ming said.
Wang grabbed the young girl from behind and decapitated her with a meat cleaver.
Bystanders and local residents subdued the attacker and called police, who arrested Wang upon arriving at the scene, Yang said.
An mob of angry citizens tried to assault Wang yesterday afternoon when he was escorted out of the Neihu Precinct to board a vehicle so he could be transported away for further questioning.
Wang has prior convictions for drug offenses and is unemployed, police said.
