Indiana’s Asian American community is grieving after a bus stabbing attack

An 18-year-old Indiana University student was stabbed multiple times in the head while riding a local bus in Bloomington, Ind., this past week.

The suspect told police she stabbed the victim because the victim was “Chinese,” adding that it “would be one less person to blow up our country,” according to an affidavit shared with NPR.

Indiana University in Bloomington confirmed that the victim was a student enrolled there and said it was an incident of “anti-Asian hate.” Police did not provide details about the victim except that she was from Carmel, a city north of Indianapolis.
