Police in Yokohama said Friday they have arrested a 30-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder after he slashed a 48-year-old woman working at a massage parlor last month.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 1:10 a.m. on March 28 near JR Yokohama Station, Kyodo News reported. Police said the suspect, Takahito Nakayama, a company employee, has admitted to the charge.

Police quoted Nakayama as saying he got irritated at having to wait for more than a hour because the parlor was full at the time. He had a knife with him and he slashed the right hand of the massage parlor employee.

Another employee called police. Nakayama ran outside and stabbed himself in the neck before police arrived. He was taken to hospital and arrested after he recovered on Friday.

Attempted murder for slashing someone’s hand?

Sounds more like attempted suicide than attempted murder. Or, so half assed, neither was the actual motive.

Actually sounds like a privileged salary dork not have the patience to wait for some noogie and his immaturity got the better of him.

There is the knife matter, but what do we know? JT rarely explains enough detail on crimes.

Don't know any legit massage parlors which are open after midnight. Wasn't it one of those hand job places that disguise as massage parlors?

Bringing a knife, into a massage parlor, and then using it to attack a person, yes attempted murder, and the woman is lucky!

Just because YOU dont know that they dont exist doesnt mean they dont. I personally go to a sauna, that is open 24/7 and they have massages available 24/7 too.

Oh yea, that should really speed up the service. He'll probably lose his job but then his employer probablly doesn't want someone so stupid.

He had a knife with him. Why ? What was the purpose of having a knife with him ?

I suspect he was prepared to commit a crime. As he tried to commit suicide, he was not psychologically stable.

That guy is lucky that the police arrested him before the parlor's "security."

Sounds like he’s a mentalist. Maybe another Tim of a society that doesn’t take mental illness seriously and even discriminates against those with it. Has the led to this man committing this beastly crime against this poor women then hurting himself?

Only time will tell, maybe the story will unravel to reveal the real motive behind this ghastly deed.

This loon has some serious mental issues. In a massage parlor in early am, carrying a knife, attacks and employee because he had to wait and then tried to kill himself? Wow!
