Female American schoolteacher stabbed to death in mall restroom

A 47-year-old American schoolteacher was stabbed to death in an upscale mall restroom in Abu Dhabi by a suspect wearing a full black burka with a veiled face, according to Fox News, reports Mark Ellis, Senior Correspondent, ASSIST News Service.

The blonde-haired victim was Ibolya Ryan, the mother of 11-year-old twin boys. Ryan, born in Romania, later became an American citizen and was recruited to teach abroad by Footprints Recruiting, a teacher-recruiting firm.

Founded by two English teachers, Footprints recruits ESL instructors from the U.S. and other countries and places them in teaching positions in “safe, reputable English institutes and government programs worldwide,” according to their website.

Authorities in Abu Dhabi released video footage of the suspect, who wore a full black veil and authorities said used a sharp tool that was seized by police. A long trail of Ryan’s blood is seen on the white marble mall floor leading from the restroom.

The stabbing followed a security warning posted by the U.S. Embassy in Abu Dhabi in late October, which cautioned Americans about “recent anonymous posting on a Jihadist website that encouraged attacks against teachers at American and other international schools in the Middle East.

In the video, the suspect is seen walking into the fashionable mall on Reem Island. The suspect grabbed a newspaper and disappeared into a hallway. An hour and a half later, the suspect reappeared and hurried toward an elevator. A woman attempted to impede the suspect before she entered, but retreated. The suspect then swiftly walked out of the mall.

Col. Rashid Borshid, head of the Criminal Investigation Department, told The Associated Press that the attacker has not been found. He said police are looking into probable motives and the gender of the attacker. He said a fight broke out between the victim and the attacker in the women’s restroom immediately prior to the horrifying attack.
