A 37-year-old man was stabbed in the back by a man who then turned himself in at a koban (police box) near JR Omiya Station in Saitama, police said Monday.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 7:30 p.m. Sunday. NTV reported that the victim was walking near the station when he was suddenly attacked from behind.
