Police in Hakodate, Hokkaido, have arrested a 40-year-old man on suspicion of abusing the second daughter of his girlfriend at her house.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 1:10 p.m. on Saturday. Hokkaido Broadcasting Corp quoted police as saying that the man, who is a construction worker from Tomakomai City, grabbed the girl who is under 10 years of age, by the scruff of the neck and threw her to the floor.

The child’s mother had gone out after having an argument with her boyfriend.

Police said a neighbor heard a child crying loudly and called 110. The child suffered a head injury and was taken to hospital. Police said her injury was not life-threatening.

Police said the man has admitted to the allegation. Although there have been no reports of child abuse concerning the man, police are investigating the circumstances of the incident and whether he has committed any acts of violence against his girlfriend’s children in the past.

i have seen so many of these kind of cases, at the end it will be the girlfriend forgive the man, and she will keep silence and blind eyes in the future if the same case happen again. So the single mother cannot survive on her own? and she is too lonely to sacrifice her own daughter just to get a rubbish man accompanying her? the biggest culprit in this case will be the irresponsible mother!

At least it wasn't sexual abuse. Still impermissible tho.

15 years in prison please. I pray that he dies in there.

And the mom is blameless for going out after having an argument with her boyfriend and leaving her kids alone with him?

The mother is also to blame for leaving her children alone with him after a heated argument. Clearly he's got a volatile temper and should be kept far away from the kids.

Please arrest her too.

She fights with the manchild and leaves her kids in the process?

No intelligence anywhere between the two.

Yet another case of a man seeing his girlfriend or wife's children as "unwanted baggage".

Sorry ladies, you need to be very careful who you date. There are some total losers out there, you don't need to date them and your children really don't need you to date them.

i know it is hard and lonely to become single mother/father, but for goodness sake, raise your innocent kids up is your prime responsibility, and finding another wrong man/woman for your own pleasure is the last thing on earth you shall do

I hope he spends the most of his life in jail. I wish he had done it to the mother instead of innocent child. Some women love the violent and aggressive man. She isn’t with him because she can’t find decent man and can’t look after children, she is with him because of lack of functioning brain cells.

Good on the neighbor, for calling it in.

I hope the woman changes her priorities, and her locks.

If that GF has any sense at all she won't be his GF after this! Of course it was dumb to leave the kid with this stupid ape.

Please allow me to grab him by the scruff of the neck and we’ll see how it goes from there

Yeah. Put this clod in the can and have some inmate or a warden grab him by the scruff of the neck and shove his face to the floor! Let's see how he likes it.

It is hard for a man to support a woman and her two daughters. Not only a financial burden, but being outnumbered by females in ones own home can be extremely stressful. I don't think that those who cry for punishment realize that this poor man has most likely been punished plenty before finally snapping.

A mother hen never leaves a den she has to defend.

Lack of joint custody and shared parenthood often leads to this.

Mother kidnaps and disappears with her child, gets a new boyfriend, and the child's father is cut out and unable to oversee and protect his kids from these strangers when they get abusive.

In England these people get sent to prison and have to be segregated. The other prisoners call them beasts and beat them up etc.
