A Japanese pop-star is hospitalized in critical condition after an obsessed fan attacked her while she was waiting to take the stage.
Mayu Tomita, 20, received nearly two dozen wounds to her neck and chest.
Police arrested Tomohiro Iwazaki, 27, at the scene. He is reported to have said he was angry because Ms Tomita returned a gift he had sent her.
The singer had reportedly complained to police about the fan last month.
Japanese media says she contacted police after Mr Iwazaki started posting obsessive comments about her on Twitter and other social media sites.
When police arrested him after the attack, he is reported to have told them that he ambushed her at the station and asked her about the gift.
“I lost my temper because she didn’t clearly answer,” he reportedly said.
I am no relationship expert, but I think returning your gift and calling the police is answering loud and clear. She’s just not that into you dude.
