Police have arrested a man on suspicion of murder after he allegedly beat to death his boss staying at the same guest house facility in Tokyo's Kita Ward.
According to police, the incident occurred shortly after 2:30 a.m. on Sunday at the guest house. Fuji TV reported that the suspect, Makoto Saito, 44, a plumber from Nishigaoka, Kita Ward, beat to death his boss after an altercation. The victim was taken to hospital where he died shortly after arrival.
Police said Saito has admitted to the charge. He was quoted as saying he hit his boss in the face several times with his bare hands. Saito said he lost his temper after his boss grabbed him during their argument because he returned to the guest house drunk. Saito called 119 himself after the incident.
The guest house is a renovated residence that has become a lodging facility for tourists, business travellers and foreign visitors.© Japan Today
