Authorities have opened an investigation into the attack and were working to determine a motive, a news release from the district attorney's office said. In addition, the suspect's Facebook page is filled with pro-Palestine, anti-Semitic, and anti-Trump posts.

Ryan added that another woman, aged 77, was slightly injured in her arm as she was attempting to help the girl amid the violation.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan says the 22-year-old woman, now identified as Deane Kenny, was seated at one of Winchester Public Library's reading rooms Saturday morning when 23-year-old Jeffrey Yao stabbed her with a 10-inch knife. Ganz said the woman, who was upright and conscious, appeared to have injuries to her shoulder.

But a day later, one large question still loomed over the sudden burst of violence that shattered the tranquility of the town's library: Why?

Police are still investigating the killing.

Airstrikes on suburbs of Syrian capital claim move lives
Rebels have been firing back into the capital Damascus, where a hospital was hit, the official Syrian news agency SANA said. The scale of the attacks from barrel bombs and other missiles was making it hard to find and count the dead, rescuers said.

Leslie Luongo, another neighbor, told The Boston Globe that she would run to her vehicle each day when she left for work at 5 a.m. because she was afraid of Yao.

Yao graduated from Winchester High School in 2012, according to the Globe.

A group of neighbors reportedly spoke to Winchester police over the summer about the concerns over Yao, and police said they were aware of him and were observing his behavior. He's being held without bail until his court appearances on Monday.

"I thought somebody fell down the stairs", he told the newspaper.

Neither she nor Winchester Police Chief Peter MacDonnell would provide additional details.
