Early this morning a 31 year old unemployed man sneaked up behind a 41 year old taxi driver taking a wizz in a public toilet at a shrine in Shinjuku and whacked him in the head a few times with a hammer. Two guys passing by heard the driver’s screams and held the attacker until the police arrived. The attacker said he wanted to die, and figured if he killed somebody he’d get the death penalty. Luckily the victim wasn’t seriously injured. Must not have been a sledge hammer.
