14 Comments

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.

He was waving the knife around like an Indian from Arizona or Amazon. Many parents got stabbed last year some of them even died. This guy is a 'scumbag' and should be put behind bars with hard labor to learn how to work. And when he returns back to his freedom perhaps he will join work force.

This is a tragic story and is alarming to think that a man could do that to his own mother. That said, I surprised myself by laughing out loud when I read what he said "I was waving the knife around when she got stabbed.” I'm surprised he didn't include that his mother didn't jump onto the knife.

The mother should not have bring up money problems or jobs around a 32 unemployed son, at least that is probably the reason

Maybe it has to do with his upbringing or neglect during chilhood. He was probably scorned at her from long time ago.

Ban kitchen knives in Japan. People must eat whole vegetables and chunks of meat, but it will save lives.

Same story different day here but agreed on baby living at home. Must be millions of unemployed living on Mommys pension. I hardly believe its 4.5% unemployed here. I always think of Marvin Gay who was shot by his old man in a heated argument. Put this thumbsucker in the booty house for... mmm 1 year maybe two.

Seems some people have the nicest ways in which to show their gratitude to their parents for all the work involved with raising them!!

Hey, why the rush to judgement? Maybe she threw herself on the knife to framehim and get him out of the house.
