Yesterday, a 27-year-old Polish man was detained by the police in Stalowa Wola for stabbing at least eight people in VIVA shopping centre in south-eastern Poland.

The eight people were hospitalized, at facilities in Stalowa Wola, Tarnobrzeg, and Sandomierz. Speaking to PAP news, police regional spokesperson Anna Klee said a 50-year-old woman died in hospital. Klee said, "He was attacking people from behind, hitting them with the knife".

Local police spokesperson Andrzej Wierszyna said the attack took place at the mall. In the official statement, police were notified about the incident at 3PM local time. The attacker was reportedly stopped by a gallery costumer. The accused was tested for alcohol, but the result was negative.

The attacker was reported locally as "Konrad K." Mariusz Ciarka, a National Police spokesperson, said they were testing suspect's blood further, after the negative alcohol test, as they "could not explain the motives for his actions".
