Sweden: Kosovan immigrant stabs policewoman in throat
A 31-year-old man has been arrested for the attempted murder of a police officer. The suspect, a Kosovan national who was due to be deported from Sweden, slashed at the policewoman's throat with a sharp piece of glass.
The incident occurred on Tuesday afternoon at the Migration Board's detention centre in Gävle.
"Her injuries are not life-threatening," said police spokesman Hesam Akbari.
Two police officers had been sent to the detention centre to accompany the suspect to a waiting vehicle.
Moments prior to the attack, the man is reported to have threatened one of the police officers.
Pity the policewoman didn't kill the thug in self-defense.
