According to reports, the man, a Chinese national, attacked his ex-girlfriend after a failed attempt at reconciliation. The incident happened in front of an exit of Ikebukuro Station, the second-busiest railway station in the world.
The woman, whose nationality is unknown, tried to defend herself and shouted for help. Video footage taken by pedestrians shows passers-by running towards the assailant. Pictures of the assault were later shared on Twitter.
