They need to catch this guy! No need for him to be out on the street harassing anyone. Also, Japan needs to make tougher laws tp people that commit these crimes or stalkers, rapists etc.

Hopefully he gets caught because we don't need this type of nut on the loose and people being fearful just to walk at night.

What a scary situation. After her recovery there will probably years of emotional scarring that she will overcome.

Hope the culprit is found quickly and put in prison for a long time for attempted murder.

This narrative description just narrowed it down by about 500,000.

Such a shame that these young women going about their daily lives are being assaulted and knifed by mentally ill men.

The courts should really punish these nut jobs severely if their is clear evidence to convict.
