A knife attack on a Japanese bullet express train near Tokyo left one passenger dead and two others injured, police said Sunday, as they arrested a suspect who was on top of a man lying unconscious.
Police said they apprehended Ichiro Kojima, 22, after the train made an unscheduled stop late Saturday at Odawara station west of Tokyo following an emergency call that there was a knife-wielding man. The Nozomi train was heading to Osaka from Tokyo.
The article goes on to state the following:
Kojima was on top of a man lying unconscious on the floor of the isle with a knife stuck in his thigh when officers arrived, police said. The 38-year-old victim was also stabbed in the neck and was later pronounced dead.
Odawara police official Satoshi Oiye said the suspect admitted to police that he had attacked the passengers. Police are continuing to investigate his motives, Oiye said.
Japanese media reported that Kojima said he made the assaults because he was irritated and felt like attacking anyone.
Oiye said investigators also found a machete believed to be belonging to the suspect at the stabbing scene, though it was not known how it was used.
