Police said Thursday they have identified the suspect who fatally stabbed a man in Yokohama, and then himself, as his wife's boss at the Kanagawa shipping company where all three worked, according to media reports.
TBS reported that the victim, identified as Yuji Kurosaki, 42, and his wife Satoko, 39, returned to their apartment in Sakae Ward at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday. Satoko told police that the doorbell rang and her husband answered it while she was in another room. She said she heard an argument and came to the entrance to see her husband struggling with a man wearing a helmet bearing Japan Post Office’s “JP” logo, TBS reported.
The suspect was also carrying a package addressed to Kurosaki, police said. After stabbing Kurosaki, he then stabbed himself in the abdomen. Satoko received a cut on her finger after struggling with the assailant.
Kurosaki had taken Monday and Tuesday off to care for his wife, who had not been feeling well, TBS said.
Police believe the suspect, whose name has not yet been released, had been waiting for the couple to return home. Satoko was quoted as telling police that her husband and the assailant had been quarreling in recent weeks, TBS reported.© Japan Today
