Police in Yokohama have arrested a 38-year-old man on suspicion of killing his 75-year-old father by kicking him multiple times at their home.
According to police, Ryoma Hanyu, a part-time worker, assaulted his father Akihiko several times between early August and late September, Sankei Shimbun reported. On Sept 25, Akihiko’s health condition suddenly took a turn for the worse, and he was admitted to a hospital. Two days later, the hospital contacted the police about a suspected case of abuse.
The victim died last Sunday. Police questioned Hanyu and arrested him on Monday. Police said he has admitted to assaulting his father and quoted him as saying, “I resented him because he would repeatedly leave his dirty clothes lying around without washing them.”© Japan Today
