Carer 'stabbed to death' and two other women injured as armed police storm facility | The Sun

ONE carer has died and two others left injured after allegedly being stabbed by a vulnerable patient, we can reveal.

The 54-year-old was on shift when she was allegedly attacked.

Other female workers – aged 29 and 58 – at the supported living facility were caught up in the alleged attack, with witnesses seeing at least one leave the building nursing an arm injury.

Police were alerted to the alleged incident at Craighall Court in Stirling, just before 11am on Tuesday, and stunned onlookers saw armed officers storm the building.

The 54-year-old was taken by ambulance to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, where she sadly died.

A 32-year-old woman has been charged in connection with the death and alleged serious assaults, and is expected to appear at Stirling Sheriff Court on Thursday.

A witness, who did not want to be named, said: "The lady who died was a carer.

"It was quite frightening. The other two injured were also carers.

"One of them came out and one of them towels wrapped round their arm.

"Police and ambulances came down, the police had their guns out.
