    Shouldn't that be; Police quoted her as saying that she was told to be quiet and then hit on the head ?

    He then stabbed her on the right side of her head with what appeared to be a knife, the girl said The girl was taken to hospital to be treated for a 3-cm-deep gash above her forehead

    Eh ? She was hit on the head and then stabbed on the right side of her head and or was it her forehead, right side of her forehead maybe ?

    This isn't explained very well in the article.

    Anyway, hope the nutter is caught soon.

    My God, that poor girl! How absolutely terrifying for her! And how scary that this nutter is on the loose. He stabbed her in the head? Sounds like he wanted to kill her. I hope hes caught quickly before he manages the job on someone else, and I hope this poor girl can recover from the trauma.

    She got a gash 3 centimeters DEEP? Don't you mean 3 cm long? A 3cm deep gash would have gone into her brain. How many knives can penetrate bone like that?

    Moderator: Thanks for pointing that out. It has been corrected.

    These incidents are seemingly becoming more and more frequent. Why aren't the police out on foot patrol? A more obvious police presence may prevent some of these attacks... as would more CCTV.

    "Police said he was described as being 25 to 30 years old, and about 175 cms tall. "

    Wow that narrows it down, let me guess, he had black hair and was wearing a black suit.

    Gee with such a great description, they'll have him within the next 100 years or so.

    The dog was probably the size of a rat.

    Thunderbird2 my thoughts exactly! Japanese police need to get out of the koban and start patrolling on foot or by car! just last night my friends car was broken into and her GPS was stolen and there was a koban on the next street behind her house! They broke into multiple cars. How many more people have to get injured? how many more cars broken into, car accidents happen due to reckless driving? how many more crimes have to happen while these guys sit in a koban? One of my Japanese friends is a police officer..he's a good man but is restricted to sitting in a koban waiting for people to come to him for help.

    Uhh... he cuts her FOREHEAD? Very odd. If he had intended to do harm, almost any place else on her body would have been a better choice. The knife would have almost naturally gone to her neck to get her to comply and would have done a lot more damage in that position. Something smells fishy.

    The psycho didn't blind the girl with his knife, he must have been in a good mood.

    I hope he is caught and taken off the streets as soon as possible.
