A sense of edginess has been with France since a murderous series of killings in 2015 in the name of the Islamic State group.

The 24-year-old attacker is known to police for a history of violent crimes, according to BFMTV, but allegedly not to the intelligence services.

The woman was holding a sharp object, reportedly a box cutter.

It is assumed that the woman suffers from mental disorders. Police later searched her home to find any links to ISIS or other terror groups. The police say that it is too early to say whether this incident be considered a terrorist act.

More than 240 people have been killed in terrorist attacks since the massacre at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris in January 2015.
