Police in Kamisu, Ibaraki Prefecture, have arrested a 23-year-old man on suspicion of abusing his three-year-old daughter in January.

According to police, Ryugo Aminaka, a company employee, punched his daughter in the face on the night of Jan 6, Sankei Shimbun. 

When the girl was taken to her nursery the next morning, staff noticed that her cheeks were swollen and notified a child welfare center about a case of possible child abuse.

The child suffered internal bleeding. Her injuries required about one month to heal, police said.

Police said Aminaka has denied the charge.

The child is currently in protective custody in a child welfare facility.

All the hoops that have to jump through to get a driver's license, enter uni or find a job. But any freaking neanderthal can bring life into the world.

Seriously? What could possibly elicit a grown man to punch a 3 year old girl in the face? There is absolutely nothing she could have done to ever deserve a grown man throwing his fist in her face. What is wrong with this fool?

Unfortunately, it's not just a few.

Innocent until proven guilty, folks.

Instead of prohibiting child abuse, Japan should make measures for child abuse not to happen from the start. A small thing would be to have classes for expecting parents to learn how to have patience and deal with a child in stressful situations. I wouldn't recommend impatient and short-tempered people to have kids.

Hopefully this little child will forget what happened to her and be raised in a loving family that may adopt her and love her as she should be loved!

A grown man only in the strictly physical sense, I suspect.

How in the world can you punch a 3 year old. Just incomprehensible. I would completely understand anyone who punches this moron, though.

I don't know if he is a single dad or if the mother is present but the child should have been turned over to the mother and the father ordered out of the house until all is resolved. The little girl is the one who is really being punished for her fathers crime by being surrounded by strangers in a foster care facility. Always sad when a child is involved.

@ jenni- he absolutely can be guilty before he's proven guilty, proving it is just an after-the-fact requirement. But you are right, maybe somebody snuck into their residence without waking anyone up, punched her in the face, and then left without leaving any sign that they had been there.

Of course. He deserves his day in court. But someone abused this poor kid and our outrage at that person, whoever it proves to be, stands. No one, as far as I know, was calling for his head at the pt. you commented. We're all just stunned that someone could harm a toddler in such a brutal way. Condemn the crime, condemn the criminal once he/she's been convicted.

Or maybe you think that little girl lied to the investigators while she was tearfully recounting the story

We removed our granddaughter from her house because her older brother liked to kick her in the stomach. When I accused him of punching her she correct me and said no he didn't punch me he kicked me in the stomach.

He denied it, then ask the child, the child can tell everything.

I totally get your point but who has the right to tell someone they cant have kids...

Kobe, of course, I'm not saying that. All parents, teachers and the government can do is work to eradicate corporal punishment. Some positive steps of late but obviously more can be done. That said, there will always be some who do horrific things.
