Chilling footage has done the rounds on social media of a knife-wielding middle-age woman randomly stabbing a three-year-old boy in Pekini Street, which is a bustling retail area in Tbilisi, Georgia.
The boy was holding his mother’s hand when the sickening attack happened.
The woman is seen to walk past the boy and his mother before she turns round and stabs the boy twice in the face.
After the initial attack, the mother is left visibly stunned. The knife-wielding woman then turns back and attempts to stab a young girl in the face before she is warded off by the girl’s father. The father runs at the 51-year-old woman until she flashes the blade at him, which stops him in his tracks.
Following the attack, the knife-woman was able to flee the scene.
When paramedics arrived, the boy was treated for ‘moderately severe’ wounds to his cheek and nose.

The knife-woman was able to flee the scene but was detained by police…
The injured boy’s parents said they had never seen the woman and officers were unable to reveal a motive for her actions.
The woman is charged with intentional infliction of grave injury to the health of a minor and faces up to ten years in prison.
A motive for the random attack is yet to be known, but the 51-year-old assailant remains in Georgian Police custody and faces a lengthy prison sentence if convicted.
