An 80-year-old man died early Saturday after he was apparently stabbed by a male friend of his daughter who was visiting their home in Chita, Aichi Prefecture, on Friday night.

At around 11 p.m., a woman called 119 and said that her father had been stabbed, Kyodo News reported. An ambulance and police rushed to the scene and found Toshikazu Nishioka bleeding from a stab wound to the neck. He was taken to hospital where he died at around 1 a.m. Saturday, police said.

According to police, a 43-year-old man, who is a friend of the victim’s daughter, had come over for a visit on Friday night. The daughter told police she heard her friend and her father having a heated argument in the living room. She said she saw her friend quickly leave the house. A blood-stained knife from the kitchen was found in the living room.

Police said they have the man’s name and address but his whereabouts are currently unknown.

Expensive that a father paid with his life

to show his daughter what "friend" she should immediately dump.

I'll bet a hundred yen that he says, "Yes, I stabbed him in the neck. But, I didn't intend to kill him", when they arrest him.

The house is not a meeting place for strangers.

A photograph, if available, of the wanted man might help in catching him.
