Police said Wednesday they have arrested a 27-year-old unemployed man in Neyagawa, Osaka, for allegedly abusing his young daughter for over three months.
According to police, the suspect, identified as Yuji Miyasato, was charged Tuesday with inflicting bodily harm on his daughter, now aged one, from March to June of last year. TBS quoted police as saying that Miyasato has confessed to the charge, saying: "My wife would leave the house and the baby just wouldn't stop crying. Sometimes I hit her head with the milk bottle, and from time to time, I'd throw her onto her bed."
The girl was severely injured, having sustained cerebral contusions, and deteriorated eyesight, police said.
Police are also questioning Miyasato's 36-year-old wife.© Japan Today
