We're learning more about this terrible tragedy.
Two members of the pop group AKB48, 19-year old Rina Kawaei, and 18-year old Anna Iriyama were attacked by man wielding a saw who is also believed to be a staff member at a meet and greet in Iwate on Sunday where the violence took place!
Ah, that is the scariest!
Well, he came, he saw, and then thankfully, he got arrested (allegedly)!
Police nabbed the alleged 24-year-old assailant, and are investigating him for attempted murder. Yeah, that is NOT what saws are for, bud. Also, how did he get past security? Was he trying to get AKB48 to sign his saw?!
According to sources, the three injured people were immediately brought to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, sources said.
Well, we're glad that these injuries weren't extremely serious. Still, it's pretty terrifying that this even happened in the first place.
