A Japanese man who allegedly tried to kill a woman he was stalking by putting poison in her shoes has been arrested.
The woman, who is a colleague of suspect Tatsujiro Fukasawa, did not die but developed gangrene in part of her left foot, police said.
It was not known to what extent she was injured or if she had to have any amputations.
Fukasawa, 40, allegedly put hydrofluoric acid, a highly caustic chemical, in her shoes in December, a police spokeswoman said.
