An employee of a Mainichi newspaper distributor was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of assault after allegedly attacking a customer. According to police, Yukio Nakashige, 29, went over to the customer’s house in Yamaguchi City at around 5.20 p.m. Wednesday to collect unpaid subscription fees. He rang the doorbell and knocked on the front door and after some time, the 38 year-old male customer opened the door, and was punched several times in the face. The customer paid the fees and called the police.
A spokesperson for the Mainichi said: “We deeply regret the actions of one of our customer service representatives. Normally, we keep them under close supervision.”© Japan Today
