Police in Koshigaya, Saitama Prefecture, have arrested a 60-year-old Korean woman on suspicion of attempted murder after she slashed her 25-year-old son with a kitchen knife at their home on Tuesday.
According to police, Katsutoshi Ko, a restaurant employee, got into an argument with her eldest son and slashed his chin with a kitchen knife at around 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Sankei Shimbun reported. The victim sustained minor injuries, police said.
Police said Ko has denied the charge. She admits arguing with her son because he wouldn't contribute to their apartment's rent, but claims she did not use the knife.© Japan Today
