A 61-year-old man was arrested for assault on Tuesday, after he allegedly hit a 67-year-old male relative several times with a frying pan.
Police said Hideo Kawasaki, a farmer in Tamana City, got into an argument with his wife at around 3.30 p.m. and attacked his relative with the frying pan when he came into the house to intervene. The relative suffered injuries to his nose and face that are expected to take a week to heal.
Kawasaki told police he got angry when his relative came in and got in the middle of things. Police added that Kawasaki had been drinking.© News reports
