Police in Sakai, Osaka Prefecture, have arrested a 33-year-old unemployed man on suspicion of abusing his one-month-old daughter last month.

According to police, Ryo Sano is accused of fracturing the arm of his daughter sometime between Jan 27 and Jan 28 at their residence in Kita Ward, Sankei Shimbun reported.

A spokesperson for the hospital said the child’s arm will take about three weeks to heal. She also had broken bones in her feet. The hospital contacted a child welfare center about a case of possible abuse and the center notified police.  

Police said Sano has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying: “I twisted her arm because I was concerned about her range of motion.” 

Sano lives with his wife, 31, their eldest daughter, 4 and their one-month-old daughter. Police said that between April 2017 and May 2018, the child welfare center was informed four times that Sano was tormenting his eldest daughter with psychological and physical abuse.

Another big man abusing defenseless kids. The sad thing is that he won’t get nearly the punishment he so sorely deserves.

Gutless and weak coward, bullying a baby. I just hope the poor baby recovers fully and never has to see this evil child abuser ever again. I really hope the animal is jailed for a very long time.

These people are recidivists, like sex offenders - if released, he will reoffend. He needs to be put to sleep.

“I twisted her arm because I was concerned about her range of motion.” This is one guy that deserves for the old fashion police style where one is taken out to the country or behind an abandoned building and well you can use your imagine at will.

This left me enraged... 1 month old baby with broken bones found in her feet? He's destroying his own childs future health by all the **** he's done at such a sensitive stage of life!!! What if she can't walk properly when she's older? What if she can't play sports as well as she may want to because her arm was fractured by this sewage excuse of a "father"!!!

Reminds me of Iranian "justice" system where they literally take the "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" saying and made it a law... I think it would be fitting in his case.

He sure has a lame excuse for his actions. Is there any valid excuses for this? No, there ain't. Put this evil bastard in the can!
