Police in Hachioji, Tokyo, said Monday they have arrested a 19-year-old man over the hit-and-run death of a 22-year-old postgraduate student on Saturday night.
According to police, the student, identified as Yuki Shiba, was riding his bike when he was hit by an unknown vehicle at around 9:40 p.m. on Saturday, Fuji TV reported. Police quoted a witness as saying that Shiba was hit by a white compact car.
Police said they examined street surveillance camera footage to identify the car. The car, with its side mirror broken, was found Sunday morning in a parking lot not too far from the spot where Shiba was hit.
Police said the suspect, who cannot be named because he is a minor, has admitted hitting Shiba.© Japan Today
