Japanese pop-star Mayu Tomita is in critical condition after being stabbed over 20 times in the neck and chest by a stalker while getting ready for a performance at a concert in Tokyo, Japan on May 21.
A 27-year-old man named as Tomohiro Iwazaki was arrested on suspicion of attacking the 20-year-old idol and had admitted to stabbing the idol because she returned a gift he sent her.
According to police, Tomohiro said: “I ambushed her at the station and asked her about the gift. I lost my temper because she didn’t clearly answer.”
It is reported that before the attack had taken place Tomita had contacted the police about receiving threatening messages from Tomohiro, and that he was stalker her online.
While Tomohiro was released after the stabbing incident, police have since re-arrested the 27-year-old on the charge of attempted murder.
