19 killed, 45 injured as knife-wielding man goes on rampage at medical facility near Tokyo


A man was arrested after killing 19 people and injuring 45 others in a stabbing rampage at a facility for the disabled in Japan’s Kanagawa Prefecture near Tokyo, local media reported, citing authorities.

Twenty of the injured are in critical condition, the national fire department, which also performs emergency medical care, has said.

A 26-year-old man was arrested by police after the attack, national broadcaster NHK reported. He was said to be holding a knife.

Police are currently looking into the motive behind the attack, which happened in the city of Sagamihara, just west of Tokyo.

The attack took place at around 2:30 am local time on Tuesday. The knife-wielding man entered the facility from the outside and began attacking people, according to police.


The man suspected of murdering at least 15 people and injuring dozens more in a stabbing frenzy at a Japanese disability centre has been identified.

The attack in Kanagawa Prefecture’s Sagamihara city, about 30km southwest of Tokyo, has left as many as 45 wounded.

Some reports suggest the death toll may be higher than the 15 confirmed, while some 20 of the wounded are believed to be in serious conditions.

According to The Japan Times the alleged assailant is 26-year-old Satoshi Uematsu. He is believed to have blonde hair and have been clad in black at the time of his arrest.

“I did it,” Uematsu said when turned himself in, according to a police spokesman.

“I want to get rid of the disabled from this world.”

Police were called from the Tsukui Yamayuri-en Gardens at about 2:30am (local time), reportedly by an employee who said a man carrying a knife had broken into the building.

Uematsu, who is believed to be a former employee of the centre, reportedly presented himself at Tsukui police station at around 3am.

  1. ‘Revitalize economy, prevent WWIII:’ Japanese mass murder suspect reveals motives in warning letter


    “I am fully aware that my remark is eccentric. However, thinking about the tired faces of guardians, the dull eyes of caregivers working at the facility, I am not able to contain myself, and so I decided to take action today for the sake of Japan and the world,” he wrote, as quoted by AP.

    “My reasoning is that I may be able to revitalize the world economy and I thought it may be possible to prevent World War III.”

    “The act will be carried out speedily and definitely without harming the staff. After wiping out the 260 people in two facilities, I will turn myself in,” the letter goes on.

    “My goal is a world in which the severely disabled can be euthanized, with their guardians’ consent, if they are unable to live at home and be active in society,” Uematsu wrote, apparently trying to explain his goal.

    The letter had raised concerns and Uematsu was committed to hospital on February 19 for almost two weeks after local police contacted him. Lab tests showed that he had used marijuana and suffered from paranoia, NHK public TV reported.

    He was discharged on March 2 because his doctors believed that his condition had improved, a local official told Reuters.

  2. One thing about knives, machetes, etc., is that you don’t have to stop to reload.
    This makes it very tough for anyone to jump you, as you are always prepared to strike.
