Police in Gamagori, Aichi Prefecture, have arrested a 42-year-old woman on suspicion of attempted murder after she stabbed a 34-year-old woman as she walked along a street.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 5:25 p.m. on Saturday. Kyodo News reported that a pedestrian called 110 and said that a woman had stabbed another woman after an argument.
Police rushed to the scene and found the victim, a company employee from Tokyo, lying on the sidewalk, bleeding from a knife wound to the stomach. She was taken to hospital where doctors said Sunday her wound was not life-threatening.
The suspect, Suzue Higaki, a part-time worker of no fixed address, was still at the scene, with a knife, and was arrested. Police said she has denied the charge and quoted her as saying, “I don’t know whether I did it or not”
