NAGOYA (Kyodo) A man died of stab wounds in Nagoya early Saturday after being dragged out of his car during an altercation with a group of men in another vehicle, police said.

The man, who appeared to be a foreigner in his 30s, was taken to a hospital but died shortly afterward, the police said.

A resident found the man, dressed in a brown shirt and jeans, at around 12:25 a.m. about 1 km west of JR Ozone Station and called the police.

According to the police, the man, who was found with hundreds of thousands of yen, appears to be from the Middle East and was carrying two different passports — one from New Zealand and one from Iran.

The police are still trying to identify him.

According to nearby residents, the man was initially in his own car but got into a quarrel with a group in another car. The men got out, punched him after breaking his window, and eventually dragged him out of the vehicle, they said.

But both cars disappeared after the attack, they said.
