Don't underestimate woman in Japan.

Or maybe a guy who "identifies" himself as a woman. Or perhaps a woman who identifies as a man? Or some one in between.

If it was a "woman" she has some serious issues.

Was the culprit male, female or trans?

Crime doesn’t know gender inequalities.

Thank goodness nobody was permanently harmed. Depending on what was sprayed it could have damaged eyesight and / or caused respiratory problems or facial burns.

Whomever did this, regardless of gender, has some serious issues.

Are you saying that you think a man attacking random women would be mentally normal?

LOL @ the posters bizarrely jumping to conclusions that the attacker was possibly "trans", or a "man identifying as a woman".

Perhaps they believe there are no unhinged females in Japan - and the world - who commit crimes.

What a coward degenerate.This is the way he chooses to get back at society? Spraying little old ladies with liquid? Dark.

This is incredibly strange isn’t it? My partner was in that store on Wednesday purchasing some bread on B2. So, glad she wasn’t a victim, she’d be terribly upset and shaken by something like that.

I guess it’s safe to assume that whoever did this fiendish act has a few screws loose, oh yeah .

What you made you think the suspect was a "he"?

Turns out they've arrested a woman.

Editor: Story has been updated to report arrest of suspect.

This should be a new article. Most of the comments here concern speculation about the perpetrator. They are rendered moot by the additional info added to the article.

A new article would spawn comments appropriate to the updated information contained therein.

Nah, just goes to show how easy it is to trigger posters here.
