Moscow, Russia — A woman who carried the severed head of a child into a Moscow metro station Monday has been arrested, the city’s prosecutor’s office said.

Moscow police said they believe the woman murdered the child, whom she was baby-sitting. The child was believed to have been 3 or 4 years old.

An amateur video shows the woman walking outside the metro station saying, “I am a terrorist. I hate you — the enemy.”

Police are not yet calling the case terror-related.

Authorities did not identify the woman but said she was born in 1977 and is from central Asia. They are treating the case as a murder investigation.
