'However..'? Huh? Assault with a deadly weapon w intent to kill  ON VIDEO hardly requires a motive  to bring about an indictment. I hope this is an error in translation or reporting.

Stabbing and causing injuries to someone in broad daylight is not something a 9 year old girl or anyone should see, much less if carried out by someone related to her. I hope the police don't forget to take this into consideration when pressing charges against the assailant, for subjecting the poor girl to such an audacious attack, at close quarters

If the child turns out to be his daughter then the best thing authorities can do is remove her from the care of such a mindless moron and find her a good home with people who are a good influence.
