Woman killed in suspected racially motivated attack by co-worker,


A black man, who was fired from his job for harassing white employees, is believed to have sought revenge by stabbing two white co-workers.

From Beach Grove Eyewitness News…

Beech Grove – Homicide detectives have arrested 20-year-old Malcolm Williams in connection with a stabbing attack on two people overnight.

Williams was arrested on one count of murder and one count of attempted murder.

Police say Williams stabbed 25-year-old Mallory Olhausen and 21-year-old Jonathon Tolan at Beech Meadow Apartments around 2:00 am Tuesday. Police have not named a motive.

Officers found the woman’s two children – ages four and one – asleep and unharmed in separate bedrooms.

The three worked at Walmart together where managers reportedly suspended Williams for harassing Olhausen.

Tolan spent most of Tuesday in surgery after suffering stab wounds to the face, neck and back.
He ran to a relative’s apartment nearby for help after the attack. Tolan remains in serious condition.

Williams is being processed on the charges and will likely appear in court later this week to hear formal charges.
