Police said Sunday they have arrested two men who allegedly pushed a 43-year-old man off the platform onto the tracks on Saturday morning at JR Oimachi Station in Tokyo.
The incident occurred shortly before 1 a.m. when one man got into an argument with two younger men, Sankei Shimbun quoted witnesses as saying.
Police said the man was pushed onto the tracks but was able to crawl beneath the platform just before the train arrived at the station. Police said he suffered a broken right wrist.
The two younger men fled from the scene in different directions, station staff said.
However, the pair turned themselves in late Saturday night at a police box in front of JR Kawasaki Station. Police identified them as Yuya Aikawa, 27, and Kento Segawa, 26, who both work at the same company.
After viewing surveillance camera footage of the incident, police were quoted as saying the two men will be charged with attempted murder, Sankei reported.
Police said that the pair had apparently been arguing with another passenger on the train and that the 43-year-old man, who was also on the train, had reprimanded them before the train arrived at Oimachi Station.© Japan Today
