Tokyo: Media reports say Japanese police have arrested an American man on suspicion of fatally stabbing his Japanese wife at a court where they were to settle a divorce.

NHK public television says the man, identified only as a 32-year-old US citizen, stabbed the woman in the neck on Wednesday near a security check at the entrance to Tokyo Family Court. It says the man fled but was caught in a nearby park.

 

The 31-year-old victim was rushed to a hospital but later died. NHK says the suspect had three knives and police believe he ambushed the woman when she walked into the building.
