Police later arrested Seiji Yamada, a 62-year-old male employee of the store, for attempted murder. He was in possession of a blood-stained knife at the time of his apprehension.
The suspect admits to the allegations, telling police that the pair had gotten into a dispute. Police believe the suspect stabbed the victim repeatedly about 20 minutes before the customer entered the store, according to NHK (Nov. 24).
