16 Comments

Police are looking for a man who attacked a woman with a box cutter as she was getting into her car Tuesday in a parking lot in the town of Mizuho. The two got into a struggle and the man fled, police said Thursday.

According to police, at around 3:30 p.m., the woman, 20, had left her part-time job at a shopping mall and had gotten into her car when the man suddenly pulled open the driver's side door and thrust a knife at her. "Be quiet and move over!" he yelled, and attempted to get into the car. As the two began to struggle, the woman grabbed the knife and cut the man's hand. He then fled.

Police say the man is 50-60 years old and was wearing black clothing, a white mask and a hat with saliva on it.

So he was probably drooling on his hat before he attacked the woman and the police are actually looking for the weapon with saliva to track his DNA. Who noticed this anyway, the police or the woman?

...Did she notice this before he attacked her, or did she spit on him maybe?

She probably spat on him as he was fleeing. Good on her.

Did she spit on his hat? What a weird description. Shouldn't the description say, ...and he has a very red hand because she out maneuvered him , and sliced him up like a true samari?

What a jerk. Glad the poor woman lived through it. Maybe they should make pepper spray legal in Japan?

You go, girl!

What a loser. 50-60 years old and he tries to carjack a 20-year-old? He's lucky she didn't brain him with her designer handbag and spear him through the foot with her Hello Kitty heels. Now if only she had chased him down and knocked him to the ground and put the boot in a few times before the police arrived; that would have made the story even sweeter. Take THAT, crook!

I think we're all skirting the true issue here ... why is it still legal to own a box cutter in Japan?

I open boxes with one of my keys that has a sharp tooth. Does than mean keys should be banned as well? (I know I know... Morikun was being sarcastic) :-)

We all know what this jerks intents were! The girl should be given a metal for fighting back!!! Who knows how many times he had done this. I only hope they catch him before he does it again.

I'm thinking maybe it should have been "Saliva" instead of just saliva. Like a band name or just a strange hat that said "saliva," if you can imagine a Japanese item of clothing saying something strange... :P
