A 15-year-old girl has been arrested after trying to murder two random women in a street.

And she did so because she “wanted to get the death penalty”.

The shocking incident took place in Tokyo's Shibuya ward in Japan on August 20, and saw a mother and daughter victims of a crazed attack.

Although her name has not been released to the media, the girl is a third-year junior high school student from the Toda area of Saitama.

She was arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder after stabbing a 53-year-old woman and her 19-year-old daughter.

The pair will make a full recovery, although the mother was stabbed in her shoulder, stomach and back, as her daughter suffered stab wounds to the back and arm.

They were stabbed from behind with a kitchen knife on a busy street filled with restaurants and homes near Shinsen Train Station.

The mother was able to overpower the girl, and sat on top of her until the police arrived – a local restaurant worker did try to help and attended to the wounds of the women's daughter at the scene.

According to local reports, the scared mother was heard screaming for help.

She said: “This girl has a knife – help.

“Who are you?

“I will never forgive you for mistaking us for somebody else.”

When she was arrested, she made a very stark admission.

She said: “I wanted to get death penalty, so I tried to kill two women that I happened to run into.”

The mother claimed that the crazed knife-wielding girl was not wearing shoes at the time of the incident.

She did not resist arrest, and will appear in court later this year.

No statement has been given by local police, but photos from the scene show the mother and daughter being attended to by locals after the girl was secured by officers.
