Man arrested for abusing 1-month-old daughter


Police in Chiba City have arrested a 22-year-old man on suspicion of abusing his one-month-old daughter by stomping on her as she lay on the floor.

According to police, Daiki Ogata, who works at a caregiving facility, has admitted to the charge, Sankei Shimbun reported. Police said that the incident occurred between 8 a.m. and 12 noon on Jan 10 at Ogata’s apartment in Inage Ward.

Police said Ogata stomped on his daughter, breaking her thigh bone. Ogata’s wife, who is also in her 20s, was out at the time. Ogata called her and said their daughter wouldn’t stop crying. His wife returned home and took the infant to a hospital where she is still receiving treatment.

The hospital notified a child welfare center about a case of possible abuse.

The couple also have a two-year-old son.

I don't give a damn if the parent is the mother or the father, and I don't care what the excuse may be because there is NONE. This guy is not a 'man' in any sense of the word. you just don't do a thing like that to a child, ever! Take both those kids away from these monsters!

Beyond the fact that this guy is an animal, I wonder if a change in expectations as well as life coaching in schools could prevent morons from doing this. I mean young men learning parenting skill. What can you do to comfort a crying baby? Well, several basic things. Perhaps it’s asking too much for fathers like this to utilize a brain cell or two.

“Who works at a care facility...” probably not for much longer!

Makes you wish there were a test for parent eligibility. This kind of abuse is often passed on to the children.

How can anyone harm a child?

They guys need a good ass wooping!

Then maybe they would think twice before they laid a hand on a child.

But, this was a baby, that's even sicker.

More sub-human filth that needs to be put down. I hope and pray the poor baby recovers fully and never has contact with this animal for the rest of her life.

What a split second of rage can do.

This occurred in January?. Also, please why call him a man, abusing a 1-month-old little baby girl is what makes him anything but a man. Hope the little one recovers and has no scar psychologically and physically speaking.
