Police in Koshigaya, Saitama Prefecture, have arrested a 35-year-old man on suspicion of fatally stabbing his 23-year-old ex-girlfriend on the street on Wednesday morning.

According to police, Yoshito Mizumoto, a company employee and resident of Kisarazu City, Chiba Prefecture, stabbed Satomi Ishizawa in the neck with a kitchen knife at around 9 a.m. as she was on her way to work, Sankei Shimbun reported. Ishizawa, who lives in Kawaguchi, Saitama Prefecture, was taken to hospital in a state of cardiac arrest but was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

Police said Mizumoto, who remained near his car at the scene of the crime, and the victim had previously been in a relationship from September 2019 until this past July. Mizumoto was quoted by police as saying there had been some trouble between them and that he wanted to get back together with Ishizawa.

It seems this lady’s intuition was correct to dump this loser. It’s a shame she hadn’t taken out a stalking order against him. It might have saved her or it might not. However, it would have made sure he goes to prison for a very long time.

These young jilted losers stalking ex-girlfriends and in some cases murdering them are far too common in Japan. Nearly all of the women in their 20’s to 30’s have stories of being stalked and abused by their boyfriends.

It seem this Japanese looser cant handle rejection and all they did is killed and take a life so young. It proved how selfish these looser are, nothing possitives and it seem such scene repeated over again . Just too igoistic.

'he wanted to get back together with Ishizawa.'

She said, 'No way, Jose'. Couldn't this oaf accepted that? Couldn't he have moved on? No means no.

What a loser.

He should spend the rest of his life in prison. Most likely he’ll only get about 15 years.
