According to police, at least one of the victims was in a serious condition after receiving multiple stab wounds from a man who went on a rampage in the Japanese capital.

At least four people were wounded after a knife-wielding man attacked them on a Tokyo train on Friday, reports say. The assault occurred on an Odakyu Electric Railway line in Tokyo’s south-western suburb of Setagaya.

The suspect fled the train by foot after it stopped, leaving his weapon and a mobile phone, but was later caught by the police.

The cause of the incident remains unclear.
