A foreign man in his late 20s or early 30s died after he was beaten to death by a gang of foreigners in Nagoya on Sunday morning.
According to police, the incident occurred at around to 1:30 a.m. in Nakagawa Ward. Fuji TV reported that the man was driving along when a car passed him and then swerved in front of him, forcing him to stop. A second car rear-ended him. Street surveillance camera footage and a video taken by a resident in a nearby building showed five or six foreign-looking men getting out of the two vehicles and assaulting the driver of the car after he was dragged out. Police said the gang appeared to be using aluminum baseball bats and knives.
The attackers left in another vehicle, leaving their two cars at the scene. The victim ran into a nearby convenience store where he collapsed.
An employee of the convenience store called 110 reporting the attack. The victim was conscious for a while but lapsed into a coma. Police said he died of hemorrhagic shock in hospital six hours later.
On the video footage, the perpetrators can be heard shouting “Hurry up!” “Wait” and “Let’s go” in Farsi (language of Iran).
Police have so far not released the identity of the victim or any information on who owns the attackers’ cars left at the scene.
