A 32-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday for attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed his mother at their Fukuoka home, police said.
Police said Ryo Yoshida, who is unemployed and lives with parents in a 2 story-home in Higashi Ward, got into an argument with his 63-year-old mother around 7 a.m. Wednesday morning. He then got a knife from the kitchen and stabbed his mother in her side. When the man’s father heard his wife’s screams and realized what had happened, he called police who rushed to the scene.
Police found Yoshida in one of the bedrooms, where he admitted to stabbing his mother. He was quoted by police as saying, “I was waving the knife around when she got stabbed.” His mother was taken to hospital, where she remains in a stable condition.© News reports
