Police in Fukuyama, Hiroshima Prefecture, have arrested a 57-year-old woman on suspicion of attempted murder after she splashed a chemical liquid on a 68-year-old woman with whom she works, and then tried to strangle her.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 7:25 a.m. Thursday at the factory where they both work, Kyodo News reported. Police said Chikako Sato is accused of splashing a chemical on the back of the victim and then trying to strangle her with a belt. 

After the victim resisted, Sato called 110 and said she had tried to kill someone. Police said the victim suffered some minor skin damage to her back from the chemical (which was not revealed), but otherwise was not seriously injured.

Police said they are interviewing the two women as well as other employees at the plant to determine the source of the trouble between them.

What was the chemical? Why would they withhold that? Was it plutonium or something? State secret?

Someone tries to kill a co-worker, and when that fails they call 110 and tell the operator they just tried to kill someone. Weird. Queue up the Twilight Zone music .....

No excuse but people don’t usually throw chemicals on a colleague and try to strangle them with no back ground! The victim could have been bullying this woman for years and she finally snapped. The article could do with a bit more meat!

Seems to be a bit more to this story more than likely she was bullied by the older woman for years and finally snapped..

I'm wondering what shift they were working because 7:25 am is an early start.

Maybe they are the ones who get in first to make the tea, wipe down everything to clean off the night dust.

I can see one getting cranky just because of that.
