A 42-year-old man was arrested for attempted murder on Tuesday night, after he allegedly stabbed a 38-year-old man who was seeing his 16-year-old daughter, police said Wednesday.
Yusai Ueno called police at about 11.30 p.m. Tuesday and told them he had stabbed a man in his home. Police rushed to the house in the town of Ueki and found Masashi Suzashi, an unemployed resident of the town of Nagasu, bleeding from several wounds to his stomach. He was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead about three hours later. Ueno was arrested at the home for attempted murder, but police said they will pursue a charge of murder and file papers with prosecutors on Thursday.
Ueno told police he was opposed to his daughter seeing the man, who she became acquainted with through a cell phone website. He said that when he learned his daughter had met Suzashi again on Tuesday, he got angry and called him to his home, where they had an argument before Ueno grabbed a knife from the kitchen and stabbed the man.© News reports
