GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) — Police in western Kansas are looking for a motive in the weekend stabbing of a Wal-Mart employee.

KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1qfHfCY ) a man entered the Garden City store around 8 a.m. Sunday and walked to the electronics department, where he stabbed the 31-year-old woman several times. The suspect ran out and was arrested about four hours later.

The employee was taken to a hospital with wounds to her head and face. Her condition Monday was unknown.

Police said the 31-year-old suspect had no known association with the victim. He was booked into the Finney County Jail on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated burglary.

Authorities said the burglary count stemmed from his conviction for robbing the same Wal-Mart last year. A judge had ordered him to stay out of the store.
