TOKYO —

Seven people died and 10 others were injured after a man hit pedestrians with a truck and then went on a stabbing rampage Sunday in broad daylight on a street in Tokyo’s busy Akihabara district, a popular electronics area and a magnet for comic and animation fans.

Police arrested the man, 25-year-old Tomohiro Kato from Susono, Shizuoka Prefecture, on the street and seized a survival knife he was carrying. He admitted to stabbing people with the knife from around 12:30 p.m., police said. The truck was rented in Shizuoka Prefecture.

‘‘I came to Akihabara to kill people,’’ investigative sources quoted Kato as telling the police. ‘‘I am tired of the world. Anyone was OK. I came alone.’’
