A 28-year-old woman was arrested Sunday for stabbing her boyfriend and leaving him unconscious after the two had a discussion over splitting up, police said.
At around 10:10 p.m. on Sunday, Maiko Sadakiyo called police to report that she had stabbed her boyfriend’s thigh with a knife at the couple’s apartment in Shimemachi, Fukuoka Prefecture, where the two were drinking and discussing their potential split.
The man, 32, was taken to a hospital for treatment, but still remains unconscious, Sankei Shimbun reports.
Sadakiyo told police that she stabbed her boyfriend because he had “stopped talking” while the two were arguing, which enraged her.
According to investigators, the woman had contacted police last December to report that she was being abused by her boyfriend and that she was intending to stay at a shelter. Police are currently investigating the circumstances of the crime.© Japan Today
