Police in Sano, Tochigi Prefecture, have arrested a 54-year-old man on suspicion of assaulting his 84-year-old father by yanking out one of his teeth.
According to police, Hideaki Murakashi, a dispatch worker, from Honjo, Saitama Prefecture, also tore his father’s shirt and broke his cell phone at around 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sankei Shimbun reported.
Police said Murakashi has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying he was angry because his father did not keep his promise to clean the bathroom.
Earlier in the year, police said they had been consulted by Murakashi’s parents who told them he often demanded money from them and would assault them if they didn’t give him any. Murakashi was given a verbal warning by police.© Japan Today
