French Mayor: Man Stabs Woman, Her 3 Daughters over Outfits

Tuesday, 19 July 2016 10:15 AM

PARIS (AP) — Authorities in southern France have detained a man they say stabbed a woman and her three daughters at an Alps resort, apparently upset at what they were wearing.

Jean-Marc Duprat, a deputy mayor for the town of Laragne-Monteglin in the Hautes-Alpes region, says the mother and her girls, aged 8, 12 and 14, were vacationing at a nearby resort when the man attacked them Tuesday morning. He said the man, who is not related to them, was upset they were wearing shorts and T-shirts. He was arrested after he tried to flee.

The condition of the woman and her daughters was not immediately known.

Laragne-Monteglin is 180 kilometers (110 miles) northwest of Nice, where a Tunisian man killed 84 people last week by driving through a crowd on Bastille Day.
