A male and female employee of a Ginza “girls bar” have been arrested in connection with the murder of the club owner, police said Thursday. The owner, 41-year-old Kiyoto Takeda, was found bleeding badly from the head on Tuesday and died in the hospital a short time later.
According to NTV, the employees, 37-year-old Takayoshi Inabe and 21-year-old Shino Matsushima, had apparently disappeared shortly after the owner was attacked, prompting police to consider them as suspects. Upon their arrest, Inabe and Matsushima told police they had gotten into an argument with the owner about compensation. Inabe reportedly told police he hit Takeda with a hammer, NTV reported.© Japan Today
