One female Chinese national was killed and another male Chinese national was injured in a dorm slashing in Japan on Monday night, local newspaper Asahi Shimbun reported.

Chop wounds were founded on the victims' upper bodies, police were quoted as saying.

Police said a knife covered in blood was found at the scene, but there's no sign of intrusion into the room.

The incident took place at around 8:20 p.m. on Monday in the female's room at a dormitory in Fuji city, Japan's Shizuoka Prefecture.

A roommate of the female victim called the police after she was found dead.

The 35-year-old female reportedly moved to Japan last May, and was a friend to the man, 20, who's receiving treatment in a hospital.

The man lives in another building.

Local police are still investigating the incident and looking for a suspect.
