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.© Japan Today
