A man has been arrested on suspicion of killing a passenger and injuring two in a knife attack on a bullet train.

22-year-old Ichiro Kojima told investigators that he was irritated and had chosen the targets at random.

Media reports said the suspect, a 22-year-old unemployed man, told police that he had acted out of frustration and that he did not know his victims.

Two women in their twenties sustained non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Police are investigating the motive of the attack. The police seized a weapon when they arrested Kojima.

Investigators found two knives in the vehicle where the attack took place.

The police suspect that Kojima had a strong intent to kill.

Witnesses said passengers fled in panic, some of them in tears.

"Everyone fled and fell like one domino after another". According to him, he didn't plan the attack and attacked the passengers of the train "only because I was highly annoyed".

The stabbings had occurred in the 12th carriage of the 16-car train service Nozomi 265, which runs between Tokyo and Shin-Osaka stations - considered to be one of the world's busiest train routes. She had called his mobile phone several times recently but was unable to talk with Kojima directly.

According to the Kanagawa prefectural police and other sources, three passengers on the train were attacked.

The stabbing is the second notable incident to take place on a bullet train in recent years.
