Two schoolchildren were attacked with knives Wednesday morning in separate incidents, in Aichi and Toyama prefectures, but neither were wounded, police said.

In Miwa, Aichi Prefecture, a 14-year-old boy was stabbed in the left arm twice while on his way to school by a man wearing a black coat and a face mask. The boy escaped uninjured with a slash to his uniform, and the assailant ran away.
