Police in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, said Wednesday they have arrested a man after a 2-year-old child was dropped from a hotel guestroom window.
According to police, the suspect, who has been identified as Tsuyoshi Mihara, 25, allegedly dropped the baby boy from a window onto the first floor roof 90 cm below on Feb 18, TV Asahi reported. The child was believe to be wearing only a diaper when he was dropped.
