Kanagawa prefectural police have arrested a married couple for allegedly assaulting two staff at JR Kurihama Station in Yokosuka City.
The suspects identified as Makiko Kimoto, 47, a part-time worker from Yokosuka, and her husband, Toshikazu, 49, a self-employed worker, were arrested on Wednesday, Sankei Shimbun reported. According to police, both have denied the charge, saying they were intoxicated at the time and don’t recall the incident.
Police said the couple punched a male security guard, 53, and a male station attendant, 61, at around 8:05 p.m. on Monday near the automatic ticket gate at JR Kurihama Station.
Since the Kimotos were drunk, the security guard urged them to hold their smartphones over the card readers on the ticket gate. The two suddenly raised their voices and got into a scuffle with the two employees of the station.© Japan Today
