After the stabbing, the woman fled to a nearby police box. Officers later arrested Kadono on suspicion of attempted murder. I wanted to stab [her],” Kadono told police.

In 2017, the woman was in charge of the eviction of Kadono from an apartment managed by the office following complaints of noise from neighbors.
