Two women slashed on trains in Yokohama
Police are on the lookout for a individual who they believe slashed two female train passengers with a knife at Yokohama train
stations on Wednesday.
According to police, the first incident occurred at around 6 a.m. at Motomachi-Chukagai Station on the Minatomirai Line in Yokohama. NTV reported that a 53-year-old woman noticed a 15-cm-long slash in the blanket she had draped across her lap. The second incident was reported two hours later by a 19-year-old university student who told police that her right buttock had been cut by a knife as she got off a train on the Keihin Tohoku line at Yokohama Station.
Neither victim saw their assailant, although police say they suspect the same individual may have been responsible for both incidents.
