According to Japanese media, several high school students attending college entrance exams in Tokyo were injured in a knife attack on Saturday.

According to the Asahi Shimbun, a 17-year-old high school student who was allegedly the perpetrator was arrested.

Public broadcaster NHK said the three were conscious after being injured when another student gathered for an entrance exam in the morning and attacked them with a knife.

500,000 high school students nationwide are taking their annual college entrance exams this weekend at hundreds of venues nationwide.

The Tokyo police station said it could neither comment on the details of the attack nor confirm the arrest.

Violent crimes are extremely rare in Japan, but there have been a series of knife attacks by perpetrators unknown to the victims.

In October, a man in the Batman Joker costume stabbed a dozen people in a passenger car in Tokyo, and passengers shouted at the passenger car’s passage, scrambled through the window, and escaped.

A few months ago, a man injured several people in a knife attack on a commuter train in Tokyo.
