A boy whose parents were stabbed to death earlier this week at their home in Sakai, Ibaraki Prefecture, has told police that the assailant was a man acting alone, investigative sources said Thursday.

The 13-year-old boy sustained serious injuries to his legs and arm in the attack early Monday, which took place when he was asleep in a bunk bed in a second-floor room with his 11-year-old sister, who suffered minor injuries to her hands.
