A 24-year-old man dressed as the Joker in "Batman" is the man who attacked passengers on a train in the Japanese capital with a knife this afternoon, injuring ten of them. Many of the passengers were going to a party to celebrate Halloween, as reported by the media. Police arrested the perpetrator on the spot, according to the same source.
