Police in Musashino, Tokyo, said Saturday they have arrested a 26-year-old man on suspicion of assault after he beat a 27-year-old man unconscious at a karaoke bar.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 3 a.m. Friday near JR Kichijoji Station. The suspect, Aguri Yoshiura, was at the karaoke establishment with a man and a woman.
Police said Yoshiura and the man apparently got into an argument and that Yoshiura beat the other man several times. The victim lost consciousness and was taken to hospital. Police said Saturday he has recovered consciousness but his injuries will take a month to heal.
Police quoted Yoshiura, a company employee, as saying he was drunk and can’t remember anything about the incident.© Japan Today
