A 32-year-old man was arrested on Monday for manslaughter, after he allegedly punched a man more than 10 times in his face causing his death, police said.
Toshiyuki Kanazawa, an unemployed resident of Fussa City, was drinking with a group of about 10 people in a Thai restaurant at around 9 a.m. on Sept 26, when the group began having an argument. A 60-year-old male customer at a nearby table told them to quiet down, and Kanazawa got angry and punched the man repeatedly in the face.
The manager of the restaurant looked after the man but his condition deteriorated in the evening, and the manager called for an ambulance. He was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead later that night, police said.
Kanazawa, who told police he was a former member of an organized crime syndicate, said he was a regular at the restaurant but has denied assaulting the man.© Wire reports
