HIROSHIMA (TR) – Hiroshima Prefectural Police have arrested the 31-year-old manager of a hostess club over the alleged stabbing of a male acquaintance in Fukuyama City earlier this week, reports TV Asahi (Oct. 28).
At around 12:25 a.m. on October 28, Manami Sumimura allegedly used a knife to stab the man, 39, in the head on a road in a business district.
The man suffered injuries that are not considered life-threatening, police said.
Police later accused Sumimura, who had been drinking prior to the incident, of attempted murder. She partially denies the allegations. “I stabbed [him] with a knife, but I did not intend to kill,” the suspect was quoted by police.
Police are now investigating the circumstances that led to the incident.
