Police said Monday they have arrested a 14-year-old boy in Ichinomiya, Aichi Prefecture, for allegedly stabbing his mother after she confiscated one of his video games.
According to police, an emergency call was received at around 5:40 p.m. Sunday from a woman who told the operator that her son had stabbed her, TBS reported. Paramedics rushed to the scene and found the woman had been stabbed in the back with a kitchen knife.
Following his arrest, the junior high school student was quoted by police as saying that he lost his temper because his mother took away a video game he had bought without telling her, TBS reported.
Doctors said the woman's left lung was punctured in the attack, but that her injuries are not life-threatening.© Japan Today
