Police in Tokyo have arrested a man in his 50s on suspicion of threatening physical violence after he brandished an awl at a seated passenger on a Tokyo subway train.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 8:45 a.m. Saturday on the Tozai Line between Kayabacho and Monzen-nakacho stations, Fuji TV reported. Police said the suspect has admitted to the charge.
The suspect told police that he wasn’t wearing a face mask, and he felt the other passenger was looking at him in a scornful way, so he took the awl out of his bag and waved it at the passenger in a menacing way.
The man was detained at Monzen-nakacho Station where a station employee called 110.
