Police in Kawagoe, Saitama Prefecture, said Thursday they have arrested an unemployed 28-year-old man on a charge of attempted murder after he stabbed his 23-year-old female friend in the back with a large kitchen knife.
According to police, Kazuya Kurosawa stabbed the woman while they were at a love hotel at around 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday, TBS reported. The woman sustained many stab wounds in her back, but her wounds are not life-threatening, police said.
Police said Kurosawa fled from the hotel but called them a short time later to report what he had done.
Kurosawa said he met the woman at a restaurant and that when they got to the hotel, he "just lost it," police quoted him as saying.© Japan Today
