Police in Takasaki, Gunma Prefecture, have arrested a 29-year-old unemployed woman on suspicion of attempted murder after she stabbed her 38-year-old ex-husband.
According to police, Arisa Saito stabbed her ex-husband in the neck with a kitchen knife while he was sleeping at around 12:15 a.m. Saturday, Fuji TV reported. The man was able to call police for help. He was taken to hospital where doctors said his wound was not life-threatening.
The couple had divorced just a few days prior to the attack and were still living together in the two-story house.
Police said Saito has admitted to the charge and said she got angry because her ex-husband hadn't moved out yet.© Japan Today
