Man calls police to report beating mother; then his house catches on fire

8 Comments

Police in Isumi, Chiba Prefecture, said Wednesday they have arrested a man in his 50 on suspicion of assaulting his mother who is in her 80s. 

According to police, the man called 110 at around 8:10 a.m. on Tuesday and said he had hit his mother with a stick at their home. 

About 10 minutes later, a male passerby near the suspect’s home called 119 to report that the house was on fire. The wooden one-story home where the suspect and his mother resided was completely destroyed; however, the man, his mother and his mother’s younger brother, who is in his 70s, got out of the residence.

Police said the woman had a cut on her head and bruises on her arm, which her son admits inflicting on her. 

Officers are questioning the suspect on how the fire got started.

Middle aged man beating up his elderly mother. Thanks a lot junior.

I'm surprised he even knew how to use a phone. So he beats on his mom, and his next move is to call the police? Why?

About 10 minutes later, a male passerby near the suspect’s home called 119 to report that the house was on fire.

That was nice of the passerby person. It was also good to know that the police hadn't arrived yet. But at least the citizens care. Maybe the Japanese government should give honorary badges to normal citizens. What difference would it make?

The useless son got out alive? Darn. He should've stayed there and roasted his marshmallows since he likes fire so much. Thankfully the mother and uncle survived. Unfortunately both are now homeless. Or all three, I guess.

They were probably really asking, "How do fires get started?" They should probably leave that up to the fire department, you know guys who actually do work.

I am hoping the suspects answer to that question would be "Well, you guys took FOREVER to get here, I got bored and decided to play with the matches my mother told me never to play with."

As always, the articles on this site are always good for a laugh or two or a couple of head shaking moments......

Or the mental issues that the son has?

It’s amazing how many people are jumping to conclusions.

the big story here should be that 10 minute wait time for the police.

He set up the fire. Calling the cops for a domestic issue was a ruse to have the police present to witness him not starting the fire.

50 year old loser living at home with his mother. Nice.

So 10mins after the call, the police still hadn't arrived at the scene. Probably busy eating donuts on the mean streets of Isumi. Ha Ha Ha.    Not sure but Isumi maybe a country side type of area where houses are far apart and so it takes time reach certain locations.  I guess we all know how the fire started the 50 year old Mamas Boy who hit his mother with a stick started it. Hope the mother and brother have a place to stay. What a heartless son she gave birth to.
