33 Comments

Police in Tokyo have arrested four people in Tokyo for allegedly beating up and injuring a man with an ice pick over rage for his involvement with one of the group’s wife.

According to police, Ran Shiratori, 25, his father Hajime, 50, and brother Shin, 22, called the 27-year-old man to a dining bar in Fuchi last December, bound his upper body with an adhesive tape and kept beating him and poking his head and hands with an ice pick.

The 27-year-old man suffered brain damage, in addition to multiple injuries that took over three months to heal, Fuji TV reported.

The victim was reportedly having an extramarital affair with Ran’s wife, which was the cause of the three men’s rage, police said.

Though police announced that a fourth person involved in the crime was also arrested, they have not yet revealed any details regarding his or her identity.

According to police, the husband has admitted to the charges against him, but his father has denied being present at the scene.

Just a head's up, if the girl your cheating with's husband wants to meet with you, don't go.

Wonder what they did to Ran's wife.

Nothing she had Ran away by then.

Why do some men place the blame on the other man for their wife's cheating?

BEATING... HIS HEAD and hands with an ICE PICK... the 27-year-old man suffered brain damage

That doesn't sound like "assault" to me, it sounds like ATTEMPTED MURDER!!

Dont get involved with a yakuza chimp's wife. Not going to excuse the 'poking brain with ice pick' behaviour, but it sounds like this guy was playing with the wrong type of woman.

Its June now & this happened last Dec & it "news" now...........we see this bizarre phenomenon with some frequency in Japan, weird!!

They poked it into his brain? What is wrong with these people????

I love how all injuries are quantified by how long they take to heal..... as if no other scars were left.

There were so many better ways to settle this... like not beating someone to the point to where they have "brain damage".

Why do I get the feeling that "alcohol" did most the thinking... again!

And none of the other customers noticed anything? Or said anything? I know nobody wants to get involved here but how could you possibly ignore some poor devil having an ice pick stuck in his brain and carry on eating. Weird.

Lol!! Just because they are "at a dining bar" doesn't mean it was open and / or had customers in.

Gents, you will save yourself a heap of trouble and risk by sticking to single women. Considering that 1/2 of all women don't even marry any more you have PLENTY of options. Best of luck.

Gnarly.

An ICE PICK! Well, that is a new tool for torture. The headline got me to read about this. How can one get over a brain injury so quickly?

I wonder what happened to the wife.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

DV probably...

As they say, 'the family that assaults, beats and tortures together, stays together.'

Hopefully, in the same prison in this case.

I wonder if assailant number 4 was the wife... there are no details on gender or relationship to the other three... hmmm

Sounds like a family friend doing some under cover handyman mechanical work and got caught working after hours under the wife's hood!

Well, they used to put them on the scaffold or stone them to death.

Reminds me of that horror flick, "Hostel."

What was he thinking by accepting the invitation? What, were they gona share stories about how great she was in bed?

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

A sick, and I wonder if brain damage healed.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

I have to admit, this had me nervous-laughing. Such a violent crime, but executed in a very atypical manner.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

People... Japan is no different than most other countries.... there is good and bad.... you just need to know where to look.

That Ran Shiratori sounds a total loser in life - cant satisfy the Missus, and then needs daddy and baby brother to attack the Missus' alleged lover. Ran...you are not a real man! Hope they all cop 20 years inside.

Just a head's up, if the girl your cheating with's husband wants to meet with you, don't go.

Maybe the husband and the victim knew each other already, and the victim didn't know that the husband had found out about the cheating.

Ran sounds like a J version of Joe Pesci in casino. Mafia style beat up.

Don't think the wife has been sleeping too well since, probably wondering if she's next. If she knew her hubby and his bro/dad were nuttas why did she a/ marry him b/ cheat on him with one of his mates?! Women pfff!

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Hmmm....blood runs thick in this family.

-4 ( +5 / -9 )

He may have been friends with Ran, and not known that Ran knew he was sleeping with the wife.

Oooh! That's terrible. I'd never mess with a friends wife. Two things you don't mess with: A guy's girl and his car.
