A 69-year-old man was arrested on Thursday afternoon for fatally stabbing the 76-year-old owner of his apartment after he was told not to feed stray cats in Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture. The victim's daughter-in-law was also stabbed and suffered injuries to her face.
Masao Takada, 69, was arrested for allegedly stabbing Fumiya Katano, 76, to death with a survival knife around 3:40 p.m. outside the apartment after he was told by the victim not to feed stray cats that came around outside the building. A passer-by found Katano and his daughter-in-law and called police. Katano was taken to hospital but died about one hour later.
The suspect, who police say was drunk at the time of his arrest, was quoted as saying, “I got angry because he kept warning me about the cats. He told me yesterday, too, but I don't remember stabbing him.”© Japan Today
