Police are looking for a man who stabbed a woman twice and then fled in a quiet residential area in Ikuno Ward, near JR Osaka Kanjo line’s Teradacho Station on Sunday night.

Police said the attack happened around 9 p.m. The victim, a company employee, 28, was stabbed twice in the left arm as she attempted to get into her car, parked at the side of the road. Her injuries are not life-threatening, police said.

According to the victim’s testimony, the assailant, who was clad all in black and wearing a black hat, didn't say a word to her. She told police that she has never met him before and can think of no reason why she was targeted.

This kind of rampant crime fills me with fear and prejudice and causes me to regret leaving my native country. This kind of senseless violence never happens there!

Knives. Hmmm... well, unfortunately some are drawn by the allure of the blade and want to try it out. The Blade is mightier than the Will. The rest is predictable.

The reason? "I was feeling irritated with life. It didn't particularly matter who I stabbed."

Crimes fluctuate with the season, and the stormy weather puts people out of whack. I hope the poor victim recovers quickly.

Doesn't sound like a random stabbing spree to me. The guy was dressed in all black and only stabbed one person near a quiet neighborhood.

Ban knifes!

THEN what will you cut your steak or ham with? Scissors?

I must be the only schmuck here who has been stabbed near fatal on the street for no reason and never thought it would happen. My guess he was her stalker and they are a dime a dozen here. My other guess is she is probably a cutie too.

Ban scissors, too! People get stabbed with them.

Knives don't kill people. people kill people.

Therefore, ban people!

... of course, she could've just made the whole thing up and stabbed herself.

Wow Miatake. Where on Earth are you from? It must surely be a paradise. If you were to cram 127 000 000 people into my country, this sort of thing would be happening hourly. In most countries in world, a stabbing in the arm wouldn't even make the news!!

I suspect there's a dash of sarcasm somewhere in Miatake's post ;)

She probably met the guy once, but doesn't remember because it was a casual meeting in public. He is upset because she was not interested beyond a greeting, and now he wants to punish her. Some Japanese guys cannot handle rejection.

This would be the attacker's first step. Next time he'll be more bold.
