AKB48 members attacked at handshaking event in Iwate

An unemployed 24 year old man brandished a blade-like item at an AKB48 handshaking event in Takizawa city, Iwate on the afternoon of May 25th, causing injury to two AKB48 members (one being Rina Kawae) and one staff member.

The AKB48 members were in line in a tent shaking hands with fans when the man suddenly took out a saw and attacked the members and staff. He was quickly captured by staff and was arrested by police.

The three were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
