13 Comments

Police in Tokyo said Thursday they are looking for a man who attacked a 63-year-old man with a metal pipe as he was walking along a street in Minato Ward.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 8 a.m. Wednesday. Fuji TV reported that the man told police he heard a voice call out from behind and as he turned his head, a man sprayed something in his face, almost blinding him. The assailant then hit him with a metal pipe before fleeing.

Police said the victim suffered injuries to his head, right shoulder and left knee.

The suspect is described as being 30 and 40 years of age, and was wearing a white helmet and blue work fatigues.

Sounds like a punishment beating by a member of a certain organisation... certainly not a mugging or robbery. Hope the old chap recovers quickly and that they catch this piece of scum

@Thunderbird2, you are bloody genius. Thank you for your insight.

That was sarcasm, by the way.

This happened in my neighbourhood, actually. The area was swarming with police, but nobody knows anything about this as of yet. I will be looking over my shoulder anyway.

What a freak. Another one who lacks of both attention and love.

Thank you for being so kind and generous, that's very big of you. (ditto sarcasm)

Hope the chap pulls through... I can't imagine what it's like to be clubbed, terrifying as well as painful no doubt.

What a cowardly act. Why don't these whacks pick a fight with someone their own size/age? It's always the elderly, women and children who are victimized.

And if an when they catch the guy he'll probably say "I just wanted to see what it was like to beat someone with a metal pipe".

Where in Minato-ku?

ANN News shows that it happened behind the Cope Takanawa (コープ高輪) building (4-6-8 Takanawa, Minato-ku), next to the parking stalls. It's about 300m directly west of Shinagawa Station's Takanobu entrance.
