Police in Yamagata City have arrested a 30-year-old part-time employee of beef bowl chain Sukiya on suspicion of assaulting a co-worker inside the restaurant’s kitchen.
According to police, the assault occurred at around 9:20 a.m. on Sunday, Sankei Shimbun reported. Police arrested Tatsunari Yokoyama after he allegedly assaulted a 20-year-old male colleague — also a part-timer — by hitting him with a cooking utensil and kicking his lower abdomen.
Police said Yokoyama had just finished the night shift when the victim showed up for work. Yokoyama was quoted by police as saying he got angry because he had reprimanded the 20-year-old about his work attitude and felt the man was ignoring him.
