KANAGAWA (TR) – Kanagawa Prefectural Police have launched an investigation following a stabbing incident that left one person dead and two others injured at a residence in Sagamihara City, reports the Asahi Shimbun (Oct. 3).

At around 1:00 a.m. on Sunday, police were tipped off by a telephone call from a woman in which she said, “I’ve been stabbed by my husband.” Officers arriving at the residence, located in the Miyashimohoncho area of Chuo Ward, found a man, believed to be in his 40s, collapsed and bleeding at the entrance. He was later confirmed dead.

On the second floor, police discovered a man and his wife, both 34, collapsed with stab wounds in a bedroom. Several blood-stained knives were also found at the scene.

According to police, the woman’s husband has hinted at being behind the stabbing, according to TBS News (Oct. 3).
