Crowds gathered at the Bataclan theatre in Paris on Sunday to pay their respects to the 83 people killed there one month ago. (Dec. 13)

A schoolteacher in a Paris suburb was stabbed Monday by a man who invoked the Islamic State, French police said.

The masked assailant attacked the pre-school teacher in Aubervilliers with a box-cutter and scissors. French media said the teacher was injured but was expected to survive.

The attacker remains at large, according to police. Children were not at the school at the time of the attack.

Police said the attacker mentioned the militant group, also known as ISIL, but that the investigation has not yet determined a motive.

The incident comes as France remains under state-of-emergency anti-terrorism legislation following the attacks on Nov. 13 that killed 130 people.

On Sunday, France’s anti-immigration National Front party failed to make expected gains in regional elections.
