Yes , it’s difficult to defense oneself as carrying knives or weapons isn’t allowed. Take a burnable spray and a lighter and burn that offensive knife attacker down to ashes, or take your belt and beat that animal dead. There are always some little chances or options. Don’t let them kill you easily, only because the official rules not to carry anything defensive are in fact your death sentence. Fight this stupidity while you still can.

RIP. The blighter was my age. It's sad that a life would end in such a sudden and unceremonious manner. I hope they catch the suspect soon. Since the article doesn't say where in Chiba this was, I can't comment on the prevalence of surveillance cameras in that area.

Lived with other men, perhaps it was a money issue.

so according to the above, the deceased was 58, and lived in the same building as the suspect, 66, who started stabbing the deceased in the chest outside the suspect's door. looks like they came to a biffo over something relatively minor.

not sure what this article here means by "facility" but sounds like a company dorm or some such? the suspect is a construction worker.

No one can deny now how worse things are getting with all this random violence...

Very sad, there are several ways you can defend yourself from a knife attack, Google it and you will find it. One option is to carry a retractable metal bar similar to what the police use. or a wooden rod 4 to 5cm in Dia. in that good old backpack and go straight to sides of the head.

Another one is to wear good sneakers and practise running. The most realistic one, imho,

Physically I’m going to be bigger than most who would pull a knife on me.

Hopefully they’re not faster than me, cause I’m with Zaphod running.
