Police said Tuesday they are looking for a man who approached a 22-year-old woman on the street near her home in Mito City on Monday afternoon, and then cut off some of her hair and also cut her in the face with a pair of scissors.
Police received a call just before 5 p.m. from the woman, saying a man had attacked her. She told police that the man, about 170 cm tall and wearing brown clothes and a black baseball cap, approached her from behind and called out to her. When she turned around, the man cut off about 5 cm of her hair and also cut her in the face, leaving a scratch a couple of centimeters long.
The man fled on foot. The woman said she did not know the man.
