New Warrant Served on Man in Road Rage Case in Japan

New Warrant Served on Man in Road Rage Case in Japan

   Mito, Ibaraki Pref., Sept. 8 (Jiji Press)--The Ibaraki prefectural police department served on Sunday a new arrest warrant on a man on charges of compulsion over a violent road rage case on an expressway in eastern Japan in August.
   It is very rare for a suspect in a road rage-linked reckless driving case to face compulsion charges under the Penal Code, which imposes stricter punishments than under the road traffic act.
   According to investigative sources, the 43-year-old suspect, Fumio Miyazaki, allegedly drove dangerously and stopped the car of a 24-year-old man near the Moriya rest area on the Joban Expressway in Moriya, Ibaraki Prefecture, on Aug. 10. Miyazaki then got out of his own vehicle and punched the driver on the face several times, causing injuries to him.
   The series of acts was recorded in a dashboard camera in the victim's car, and the police put the suspect on a nationwide wanted list on charges of causing bodily injury to the victim.
   Miyazaki was arrested in the western Japan city of Osaka on Aug. 18, along with Natsuko Kimoto, his 51-year-old girlfriend who hid him in her apartment.
