TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Saturday arrested 40-year-old man for a stabbing incident that took place in Ota Ward last year, reports Fuji News Network (April 9).

In December, Hiroshi Kawai, a chauffeur, allegedly used a knife to repeatedly stab a man, who was 27 at the time, in his left side on a street in the Omori-nishi area.

The injuries to the victim require six months to heal.

Prior to the attack, Kawai and the victim got into an argument. In security camera footage taken at the scene of the crime, the suspect can be seen riding a bicycle and chasing the victim. An eyewitness at the scene said that the suspect screamed, “I’ll kill you!”

Kawai, who has been charged with attempted murder, admits to the allegations. “We got into a fight, and I got hit in the head,” the suspect is quoted. “So I went home, got a knife and stabbed him.”
