Two people, including a child, were feared dead Tuesday in a mass stabbing attack that also injured 17 people in the Japanese city of Kawasaki, the local fire department said.

Of the victims, a 12-year-old girl and a 39-year-old man, believed to be the father of one of the pupils, died with deep stab wounds to their necks despite emergency treatment at a hospital, hospital officials said.

Another 16 people, mostly children, are believed to have been injured in the attack.

"Asahi identified the 11-year-old victim as Hanako Kuribayashi and the male victim as Satoshi Oyama, a parent to a Caritas Elementary School student". There was no immediate indication of a motive.

NHK reports two knives were recovered at the scene.

There have been previous examples of mass stabbings in Japan, sometimes involving the vulnerable.

The suspect - a man in his 40s or 50s - was said to have begun slashing at people but was detained on the spot although not before stabbing himself in the neck.

"There was another man lying on the ground bleeding at a municipal-run bus stop near the school's bus stop", the man added.

President Donald Trump was with Abe on the last day of his visit to Japan when news about the attack emerged. Speaking aboard a Japanese helicopter carrier, Trump said the American people grieved for the victims' families.

News agency Kyodo said the man was heard shouting "I'm going to kill you" during the attack.

Television footage showed emergency workers giving first aid to people inside an orange tent set up on the street, and police and other officials carrying the injured to ambulances. The man was taken to hospital but no other details were available.

And in 2010, more than a dozen people were injured in a stabbing spree on a school bus and a commuter bus in a Tokyo suburb.

They are extremely rare and Japan has one of the world's lowest rates of violent crime.

Two days before the attack, a 28-year-old man drove a truck in a pedestrian crossing. But the country has seen some high-profile killings, including the stabbing of 19 at a disabled home in 2016.
