Police on Friday arrested a 23-year-old man on a charge of attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed his 22-year-old friend in the neck with a kitchen knife.
According to police, Kiyoshi Shimabukuro entered his friend's home in Suzuka City on Friday morning and attempted to murder him in his sleep. The man awoke and was able to escape with only minor injuries.
Police say that in March, Shimabukuro had been driving his friend's car and gotten into an accident. The two had been arguing over the cost of repairs to the car since.© News reports
