TOKYO: Japanese police said yesterday they have arrested two school girls, both aged 15, over the stabbing of a stranger with a kitchen knife in the street which left him seriously injured. 

One of the girls who confessed to stabbing the 21-year-old man late on Thursday at a summer festival was quoted by a police spokesman as saying: “I was feeling very irritated. The victim could have been anybody.” 

The spokesman declined to comment on how the girl came to be carrying a kitchen knife, which had a 15cm blade. 

The second girl conspired with the attacker, police said but she did not physically take part in the stabbing. – AFP
