A New York State community is mourning a beloved library security guard who was fatally stabbed after she asked a patron to turn down his music.
The attack on security guard Sandra Wilson occurred in the middle of the day on the third floor of Finkelstein Memorial Library in Spring Valley, N.Y., in front of horrified patrons. Two of them wrestled the suspect, 25-year-old Blanchard Glaudin, to the ground and held him until police arrived.
But it was too late to save Wilson, 52, from the multiple stab wounds she received at the hands of the maniac, who Spring Valley Police Chief Paul Modica said showed “no remorse at all,” reported The Journal News on Tuesday. He confessed and has been charged with second-degree murder, police said.
Witnesses told ABC News that he was smirking as he stabbed Wilson with a kitchen knife after she asked him to turn down his music, from her post on the library’s third floor. The attack happened at around 2 p.m.
“He was walking just a few feet away,” Spring Valley Police Chief Paul Modica told The Journal News Wednesday. “She was at the computer terminals and told him he had to turn it down. That was it.”
