(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested for stabbing his coworker's daughter in California.

The suspect stabbed the three-year-old girl to death in a garment factory in Los Angeles, on Monday night.

34-year-old Ricardo Augusto Utuy killed the child when her mother left her alone for a few moments.

Police do not have a motive for the killing. Utuy stabbed the child, whom police called Ruby Baby, several times after her mother left her alone.

Witnesses said that Utuy, who also worked at the factory, was regularly seen talking and laughing to himself.

The attack occurred at about 5:00 p.m., while the child was sitting alone at her mother’s work area.

The mother reportedly brought her daughter to work after she finished daycare. The mother did not have much contact with Utuy, who was hired to work at the factory about two weeks ago.

He fled from the scene while the girl was rushed to the hospital. He later turned himself in to police and he was charged with murder.
