A 15-year-old asylum-seeker at the children’s asylum centre in Rovvig in western Jutland has been arrested for stabbing another asylum-seeker in the stomach with a pair of scissors.

A 15-year-old chased two other residents with scissors, stabbing one in the stomach and giving another a superficial wound on the shoulder.

The attack happened Sunday at around noon, but police are not sure what motivated the child to attack the other residents.

Second attack
It is the second time in two weeks that have been assaults at one of the area’s asylum centres. A 33-year-old man was stabbed in the stomach at the centre in Thisted last week.
