Police in Izumisano City, Osaka Prefecture, said Monday they have arrested a 47-year-old woman on suspicion of attempted murder after she allegedly stabbed a 34-year-old male acquaintance in a parked car.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 11:35 p.m. on Saturday, Sankei Shimbun reported. Police said the suspect, Yoko Hazama, a part-time employee, was seated inside a parked car with the victim, a resident of Kashihara in Nara Prefecture, when she sprayed him in the face with mace and then stabbed him in the left hand and right shoulder with a knife.

The man managed to flee the vehicle and get help from a security guard working at a nearby company who placed an emergency phone call. Although Hazaka left the scene in her car, she was later identified as the suspect from the car license plate.

Police said Hazaka has admitted to the charge and quoted her as saying, “No mistake. I intended to kill him.” She also said there had been trouble brewing between the man and herself for some time.

The victim was taken to hospital. His wounds are not life-threatening, police said.

quoted her as saying, “No mistake. I intended to kill him.”

This statement has just tripled her prison term.

Do the hustle man. If she intended to kill there has to be a reason. We don't know all the story, maybe that guy was abusing her?

Satedaya - Do the hustle man. If she intended to kill there has to be a reason. We don't know all the story, maybe that guy was abusing her?

Read the article again. It states there had been trouble between them. She has admitted she wanted to kill him. The circumstances are irrelevant to admission of intent to kill.

An acquaintance? You know they were getting it on as well.

Use your head and do the hustle. Actually maybe in your country circumstances are irrelevant but here in Japan we investigate circumstances and reasons behind the incident 動機や経緯を調べている。- btw. now I understand why gaikokujins call it hostage justice.

Yes she admitted to kill but why? Was he beating her? Was she mentally unstable? There are troubles between all off us but it doesn't mean I take a knife and stab someone with intend to kill.

If she was mentally unstable than she can't go to prison etc. So that's why we need to investigate.

The article says nothing about him beating her. Even if he had been, unless he was beating her there in the car, she had no right to use deadly force. If she was afraid for her life, why get in the car with him? My guess is he wanted to end the relationship, or had a girl on the side. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Agreeing with Sensei258. Maybe their age difference added further pressure to their equation.
