An 18-year-old youth was arrested on Tuesday after he allegedly stabbed three people in an apartment in Hiroshima.
According to police, the youth -- who cannot be named because he is a minor -- stabbed a 52-year-old man, his 51-year-old wife and their 18-year-old son at around 12:30 p.m. The man was able to call police before he was stabbed.
The suspect was apprehended in the corridor outside the apartment. The three victims were taken to hospital where they are in a stable condition, police said.
TBS reported that the suspect, who was in the same class at elementary school as the couple's son, claimed the son had borrowed money from him back then and had never paid it back.© Japan Today
