A 45-year-old kindergarten teacher was preparing for his class this morning when a hooded jihadist attacker burst in, shouting allegiance to ISIS, and used a box cutter and scissors to stab his victim in the neck and side.
It is thought the attacker arrived unarmed at the Jean-Perrin d’Aubervilliers school and found the sharp weapons from inside the classroom.
The teacher suffered wounds to the neck and the side and is receiving treatment in the Lariboisière hospital. He is not thought to be in a life threatening condition.
