Police in Yokohama said Monday they have arrested a university student on suspicion of attempted murder after he pushed his girlfriend off a train platform.
According to police, Yuki Ozawa, 21, a 3rd-year law student at Keio University in Tokyo, allegedly pushed his 21-year-old girlfriend off the platform at Hiyoshi Station on the Toyoko Line at around 9 p.m. on Sunday, Fuji TV reported.
Immediately after the woman fell onto the tracks, a station employee pushed the emergency stop button, which brought an incoming train to a halt about 400 meters from the station platform. The woman sustained a bruise on her knee, but was otherwise not injured in the incident.
Police said the woman -- also a 3rd-year student at Keio University -- told them she had been arguing with Ozawa on the platform over whether they should go for another drink after having been out drinking with their university friends. Ozawa has admitted that he lost his temper and pushed her off the platform, but denied any intention to kill his girlfriend.© Japan Today
