Police on Wednesday morning arrested a 19-year-old youth for attempted murder after he pushed a 53-year-old man off the platform onto the train tracks at Futako-tamagawa Station in Tokyo's Setagaya Ward.
Police quoted witnesses as saying the two men got into an argument in the train on the Denen-Toshi Line at around 8:15 a.m., TBS reported. The youth yelled at the man, saying his bag had hit him. After the train arrived at Futako-tamagawa Station, the two continued their argument on the platform, at which point the 19-year-old, whom police said is a vocational school student, pushed the older man off the platform.
A station employee immediately pushed the emergency button and all train services were suspended for a short time.© Japan Today
