Police in Kitagata, Gifu Prefecture, have re-arrested a 24-year-old unemployed man on suspicion of child abuse after he allegedly threw his 14-month-old infant son onto a blanket on the floor.
According to police, Sho Koga, who was arrested on Sunday, abused the baby at around 11:45 a.m. on May 10, local media reported. He is accused of grabbing the child by both arms and throwing him down.
