Vietnamese man arrested for stabbing in group conflict in Saitama Pref
Japan Today -- Jul 02
A 25-year-old Vietnamese man was arrested Monday on suspicion of attempted murder after a compatriot was stabbed in an apartment in Kuki, Saitama Prefecture, police said.

Police found two men bleeding from multiple stab wounds in the apartment near JR Kuki Station in Saitama Prefecture on Saturday evening, after receiving an emergency call.

One victim, also believed to be Vietnamese, was pronounced dead in hospital.

Police arrested Ton That Duong for allegedly stabbing the second victim -- a 26-year-old Vietnamese who suffered serious injuries -- at around 10 p.m. on Saturday.

A group of Vietnamese was gathering in the room when another group, including Duong, came into it, police said.

埼玉県久喜市でベトナム人男性らが刃物で刺されて死傷した事件で、警察は25歳のベトナム人の男を逮捕しました。 先月29日夜、久喜市のアパートにいたベトナム人の男性らが何者かに刃物で襲われて20代とみられる男性が死亡、26歳の男性が重傷を負いました。警察は、現場から逃走した男の行方を追っていましたが、1日未明にベトナム人のトン・タット・ズオン容疑者を26歳の男性に対する殺人未遂の疑いで逮捕しました。ズオン容疑者と被害者の詳しい関係は分かっていませんが、警察によりますと、ズオン容疑者は現場で刃物を振り回したことについては認めているということです。警察はズオン容疑者について、殺人の疑いでも調べる方針です。
