Police search for man who called emergency services for dying woman

10 Comments

Police are searching for a man who called emergency services just after 8 p.m. on Monday to request an ambulance for a woman whom he said was lying unconscious on a street near Yokohama Station. Fire service workers arrived on the scene and found the woman and the caller, who said he was an acquaintance.

The woman was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead a short time later. Her male acquaintance accompanied her to hospital but then left before he could be questioned by police.

According to police, the woman -- who had no ID on her -- is believed to have been around 25 years old and the man in his late 40s or early 50s. Doctors found marks on the victim's neck consistent with strangulation and have issued a search warrant for the man in connection with her death.

Strange indeed!!! How was a woman strangled in one of the MOST crowded cities in the world near one of the MOST crowded train station in said city, and no one saw anything!?!?!?

AND if he called emergency services they should have his cell number!!! I called 110 twice this weekend and can attest to that. They even knew where I was located before I told them (I was calling about a SUPER urusai neighbor who wont turn his music down even when the police tell him to)

It's a problem when they demand information about my identity before listening to the nature of the emergency. How about you start sending over an ambulance FIRST, then I'll calmly let you know my personal details. But I'm concerned that if there is any type of uncertainty about the medical emergency, they'll come blaming the foreigner before anyone else. That has always made me apprehensive about calling 119 or 110.

You are dead right. I called one time because I saw a guy wandering in the traffic, confused and disoriented and I was afraid he was going to be knockedore they asked anything about even where he was, they wanted to know my name and what country I was from!!!

Anotehr time my husband was knocked down by a car on a crossing. By pure coincidence I came past 5 minutes later with the children, and waited with him and the driver for the ambulance. The police turned up, came straight to me and started questioning me - ignoring the driver and my bleeding husband still on the road! They just assumed I was the driver!!!

Sorry -typing went a bit funny - that should read "...he was going to be knocked down but before they asked..."

Usually, the staff at the hospital ask you what relation you have with the patient when you walk in. Why no one at that particular hospital, including the police, didn't him the simple question: kanja san to do iu kankei desu ka. Bingo.

Sounds like a very stupid situation, this dude kills the woman, but calls the ambulance and then takes off?? Maybe homeboy was doing drugs with this younger woman?? She over dosed, go to the hospital and then his messed up drug infested brain has a small spark and tells better to high tail it out of the hospital?? Pulpfiction, the movie but with a Japanese version??
