Police in Tokyo said Friday they have arrested three Chinese youths on suspicion of assaulting two people at a karaoke parlor near JR Ikebukuro Station in May.

According to police, the three suspects beat a 23-year-old man and male high school student in his late teens with a beer bottle, then stabbed them in the knees.

Police said they have learned that the three juveniles became enraged after the man wrote some negative comments about their friend online. They followed him to the karaoke parlor where they carried out the assault.

Police said one of the three suspects has denied the allegations, while the remaining two have admitted to the charge.

Possibly racially motivated? Japanese people need to learn not to mouth off at the wrong people, even online.

Even though many Japanese people are also ignorant to the fact, Japanese or Chinese is not a race, and they are both Asian, so this is not racially motivated!

I will concede that the Japanese person was probably saying derogatory things which could have something to do with their nationality.

Believing that people from other cultures that Japan has historically invaded will easily accept Japanese bullying didn't expect the behind kicking that they received in "Safety Japan".

When it comes to the social media, there are a lot of internet tough guys and gals. They need to understand that they might actually cross paths with actual tough people in the real world.

Hmm, injury with hooliganistic motivations. No suspended sentences, please.

Stabbed in the knees? That's pretty hardcore.

@shogun36 used to be known as a patella job. Shooting the kneecap or hammering it, now stabbing has been added to the list

It is a definite way to avoid an attempted murder case!
