On October 1, a teacher in Aichi Prefecture, Japan warned a 14 year-old student several times about reading manga in class. When he wouldn't stop, she took the manga away. That then angered the junior high school student.

According to ANN News, the 14 year-old allegedly grabbed a pen off the teacher's desk and then stabbed her over ten times in both shoulders. The teacher later filed a report, and the 14 year-old was arrested and apologized for the incident and said, "I got ticked off by her warning me."


Thankfully, the injuries were not serious, and the teacher recovered from them in a week.
