A 61-year-old woman suffered serious stab wounds in the back and arm Wednesday afternoon in Tokyo’s Shibuya Ward, and a woman in her 70s was later arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, according to police and fire officials.

The police are checking if the suspect, who claims to be from Fukuoka, is mentally competent to be held criminally liable, as she has made strange comments, including: “I got upset from being stared at,” police officials said.
