The president of a construction company in Ichikawa City, Chiba Prefecture, has been arrested for slamming the head of his subordinate’s six-year-old son on a floor which resulted in the boy sustaining a serious skull fracture.
Police identified the suspect as Fumiaki Nagahashi, 42. According to police, the incident occurred at around 8:30 p.m. on Monday when Nagahashi's 35-year-old employee and his son were visiting his home, Fuji TV reported. Nagahashi explained that he was “playing” with boy by trying a pro wrestling move on him. When the boy screamed in pain, he hit Nagahashi's face. Nagahashi then slammed the boy's head multiple times onto the hardwood floor, fracturing the child’s skull.
The incident came to light when the boy vomited after being assaulted and the father called 119. The father said it all happened so quickly he didn't know what to do.
Nagahashi was quoted by police as saying he got angry after the boy hit him and felt he needed to scold the boy.© Japan Today
