“He spoke to her and said hello, she responded with hello, and then he just unwarrantedly walked behind the counter and began to attack her,” said deputy chief Jakari Young with the Daytona Beach Police Department.

Bedford remained at the library after the attack, police said.

Officers said the woman will survive.

Police said the librarian recognized Bedford from his previous visits to the library.

They are still working to figure out what led to the attack.
