Police arrest man in Internet threat

June 24, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Japanese police arrested a 19-year-old man who they said made a threat on the Internet to go on a stabbing spree at Tokyo Disneyland.

The June 15 message came a week after a man posted similar warnings before killing seven people in a downtown Tokyo rampage. Since the attack, police have arrested several people who allegedly made Internet threats.

Investigators have found no evidence that the suspect, a minor under Japanese law, was preparing to carry out an assault.
