A 23-year-old woman was choked by her 47-year-old ex-boyfriend who then tried to commit suicide in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture, police said Saturday.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 5:40 p.m. on Friday. Sankei Shimbun reported that the woman was attacked by her ex-boyfriend in front of her residence in Kitazakae, Urayasu. The victim fought him off, sustaining minor injuries to her neck.

The suspect was found collapsed and bleeding from the neck in the bathroom of the victim’s apartment. There was a fruit knife beside him. He was taken to hospital where he is currently unconscious and in a critical condition.

Urayasu police said the woman had previously consulted with them about her ex-boyfriend’s stalking behavior and that they had issued a warning to him to stay away from her.

My Filipina wife is 8 years younger than my daughter which is none of anybody's business . The police should arrest these stalkers and charge them before they attack .

Too bad they found him before he bled out.

Over 20 year age difference, yeah that was a recipe for success.

Urayasu police said the woman had previously consulted with them about her ex-boyfriend’s stalking behavior and that they had issued a warning to him to stay away from her.

I thought Japan recently passed a strict anti stalking law to protect the victims? What's with this "warning" rubbish? If you tell a child "Don't do that!" (issue a warning), what's the FIRST thing they will do as you turn your back? At least she is alive!
