  • Man arrested over deadly Japan stabbing spree

Police arrested the suspect as the train stopped at Odawara Station, south of Tokyo.

The three people were sent to the hospital, but 38-year-old corporate employee Kotaro Umeda from Amagasaki, Hyogo Prefecture, died.

The other two victims are women in their 20s, and suffered from injuries to their heads and shoulders, among other areas, the Sankei Shimbun said, adding that their conditions have stabilised.

The offender was detained by the police.

Kojima was holding a knife when police seized him at the station.

We will remind, on April 27 in North China unknown armed with a knife attacked a group of 19 children near one of the schools in Shaanxi province.

Xiaomi Redmi 6 series smartphone launch confirmed with possible specs & features

Kojima told police that he is unemployed and from Okazaki, Aichi Prefecture.

According to JR Central, an average of 446,000 passengers used Tokaido Shinkansen trains each day in fiscal 2015.

The suspect was nabbed at Odawara station. She had called his mobile phone several times recently but was unable to talk with Kojima directly. A female passenger was also killed and more than 20 people were injured as the fire and smoke spread throughout the carriages.

In June 2015, a 71-year-old man committed suicide by self-immolation on a westbound Nozomi train, setting himself ablaze while it was on the same Shin-Yokohama-Odawara segment.

The stabbing took place at 10 p.m. local time (1300 GMT) and caused panic on the train carrying some 800 passengers as it traveled from Tokyo to Osaka.
