SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a San Francisco Bay Area woman was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a 12-year-old boy was stabbed in the back with scissors in a bank.

KNTV reports Tuesday that 32-year-old Iyona Dzshae Hammond of Oakland, California was also booked on suspicion of second-degree robbery in connection with stealing money from a customer making a deposit at the bank. She remains in custody without bail.

A motive in the stabbing was not yet known.

The crimes were caught on video.

San Leandro police Lt. Robert McManus says she had blood on her hands and was armed with the scissors.

McManus says Hammond went into the bank Monday morning and stabbed the boy in the back three times while he was sitting in a lounge chair. He is expected to survive his injuries.
