6 Comments

Police in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, have arrested a 77-year-old man on suspicion of attempting to kill his 50-year-old son by stabbing him with a knife at their home on Sunday.

According to the warrant, Yoshio Suzuki allegedly stabbed his son Motoyo in the abdomen with a small knife at around 8:20 p.m., Sankei Shimbun reported. Police said Motoyo ran from his home after being stabbed and a neighbor saw him being chased by his father.

The victim lives in the house with his father and mother who called 110. Suzuki was quoted by police as saying he stabbed his son because he was being violent toward his mother, but she has denied her son assaulted her.

Police said the victim’s wounds were not life-threatening.

@Smithinjapan Perhaps you cannot say he got any violent behavior from the father because the mother has denied her son assaulting her from that admission it appears the son was not violent at all.

"...the kid..."?

He's 50. Not really a kid is he?

it's GW.....he possibly is visiting his parents.

The article clearly states,

The victim lives in the house with his father and mother who called 110.

So probably not just visiting.

None of this is an excuse for the father to stab his son, but maybe asserting some slightly more aggressive discipline at a much younger age would have solved the problem by encouraging the "kid" to move out and support himself, possibly 30 years ago.

Or maybe mommy was just covering for her little boy, which may explain why he's still living at home....hmmm....
