Man arrested for falsely reporting he was stabbed, robbed

13 Comments

Police in Ashiya, Hyogo Prefecture, have arrested 52-year-old man on suspicion of obstructing police in the performance of their duties by falsely reporting that he had been stabbed and robbed.

According to police, Akihiro Ono, a company employee, had arranged to meet a friend at 6 a.m. on April 9 on the street near his home to go on a business trip, Sankei Shimbun reported. When the friend arrived, Ono was bleeding from a knife wound to his stomach. He told his friend someone had attacked him and stolen his bag.

His friend called 110. Police said an examination of street surveillance camera footage showed no one else in the area at the time Ono claimed he had been attacked.

Police questioned Ono after he was released from hospital on Wednesday and he admitted he had made the story up and stabbed himself, but gave no reason for doing so.

Yet another? Seems to be the new fad in Japan.

Seems like he was just making excuses for not going to the business trip, but he failed it. Good luck next time.

So what was in the bag that was allegedly stolen?

Silly bugger. Must be mental health issues for him to do such a daft thing, don’t you think so?

He'd rather stab himself than go on holiday with the friend? Must be some friend. (Suppose we've all got them).

Imagine just taking a normal morning walk minding your own business, end up in the security footage, and end up being framed as the stabber!!!

The presentation he was supposed to give on that business trip that he definitely finished preparing beforehand and would have been totally great, if only his bag wasn't stolen.

underrated comment.

I wonder, did they idiot actually STAB himself?

Or did he just say he got stabbed and poured ketchup on his body or something?

Nothing new about it. The word for this phenomenon in Japanese is kyogen hanzai. Kyogen, written with characters meaning "wild speech," is a comic form of the Noh drama.

Slanderous Akuma's and Majob's

Just shows how those self believing ENTITLED will use obstructing police in the performance of their duties by falsely reporting, Brings new meaning to the Japanese Karen's and Ken's . Had a few drop fake dimes my way in the past , and had to explain for hours such fictions.
