Woman slashed on street in Fukuoka


Police said Tuesday that a woman was attacked in Fukuoka on Monday night by a man brandishing a knife, the second such incident in the area in three days.

According to police, the attack took place at around 7 p.m. in Hakata Ward. The woman, a 45-year-old nurse, was quoted by police as saying that she was approached from behind by a man who forced her head down and slashed her head and arm with a knife, Fuji TV reported. Police say the woman sustained minor injuries in the attack.

Police are investigating possible links to another knife attack that took place roughly a kilometer away last Saturday. In that incident, a 54-year-old man in a public park was stabbed in the arm and chest by a knife-wielding man.

The woman’s attacker has been described as between 165-170 cm in height, wearing a black knit cap and sunglasses.
