Police in Wakayama City said Friday they have arrested a 24-year-old man for assault after he allegedly stomped on his 6-month-old baby son, breaking the child's right leg.
According to a report on NTV, the incident took place at the home of the accused on Oct 8 at around 9:30 p.m. The suspect and his 21-year-old wife took the child to hospital where medical staff became suspicious of the cause of the boy's injuries. The Support Center for Children, Women and the Disabled then reported the incident to police, NTV said.
During questioning, the man, who was identified as Kazuki Hara, was quoted as saying that the child wouldn't stop crying, and he got angry.
The support center said that they sent a report to police about a similar incident involving the child in July, NTV reported.© Japan Today
