A 25-year-old man was arrested for attempted murder on Monday, after he hit a 29-year-old man repeatedly with an aluminium baseball bat. A taxi driver called police just before 2 a.m. and told them a man was walking around with a baseball bat. Police rushed to the area outside Gyotoku station in Ichikawa City, and found Kazuma Oi standing over a man and attacking him with the bat.

Oi was arrested and admitted to attacking the man, saying he was challenged by him. The victim was seriously injured and was bleeding from his head, but is in a stable condition in hospital, police said.

A good time to walk around the station with a baseball bat.

Moral: never, ever challenge a man at 2AM with a baseball bat

Well, at least it wasn't a geriatric going ballistic today, or mother assisting in her daughter's rape/assault. I guess that makes it an almost 'normal' attack for today so far.... SO FAR. Japan's just not the 'safety' country it once was.

Who needs a knife or a sword..? A baseball bat in Japan is just as good as having a 44 magnum.

I wonder when they will amend the "Firearms and Swords" Law to read, "Firearms and Swords and Baseball Bats" Law..?

I wonder if it took 10 cops to arrest this guy, and in the process the cops stuck their heads out to absorb the impacts and swings of the guy wielding the bat, rather than, accidentally "harm" this nice man during his arrest...?

Cleo... Care to weigh in with your Informed and so Astute opinion...?
