(NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio.) — A woman allegedly stabbed a 3-year-old boy to death outside an Ohio grocery store in a random attack, according to police.

The little boy and his mother were both stabbed around 3 p.m. Monday in the parking lot of a Giant Eagle in North Olmsted, about 15 miles outside of Cleveland, according to North Olmsted police.

The boy suffered stab wounds to the back and cheek, police said. His mother, Margot Wood, survived with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The suspect, 32-year-old Bionca Ellis, was taken into custody, police said.

Ellis and the victims didn’t know each other, police said.

Ellis is facing charges including aggravated murder, police said.
