Police on Wednesday arrested 32-year-old man in connection with a threatening message that was posted on a popular Japanese forum website. At 12:35 a.m., the suspect, who has been identified as Masaki Watanabe, allegedly wrote that he was going to "go to Takarazuka University tomorrow and kill at least 30 people." It is also alleged that he threatened the 58-year-old head of the secretariat.
According to police, Watanabe was until recently a student of fine art at Takarazuka University but dropped out in September of last year. Sources claim that Watanabe left the university after asking a female student out and being rejected.© Compiled from news reports
