Police have arrested an unemployed 42-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder after he slashed his mother with a kitchen knife at their apartment in Tokyo's Adachi Ward.
According to police, the suspect, Takahiro Miki, attacked his 74-year-old mother as she was preparing to go to work on the morning of June 26. Fuji TV reported that Miki slashed his mother’s neck with a kitchen knife with a 16-cm blade.
Police said the woman is in a stable condition in hospital.
According to Miki, two days before the incident, his mother told him “I don't know how long I will be well enough to work, so I need you to get a job as well." He said he quarreled with his mother after she told him to get a job.© Japan Today
