The Tokyo District Public Prosecutor's Office has dropped charges against a 47-year-old man arrested for critically injuring a woman at a love hotel in Tokyo's Shinjuku Ward. Prosecutors did not give any reason for not proceeding with the indictment.
The defendant was involved in a "Papa-katsu," or "sugar daddy" relationship with the 27-year-old woman and paid her to go on dates, Sankei Shimbun reported at the time of the man’s arrest on June 30.
The man was accused of punching the woman several times in the face at the hotel. Police believe financial trouble had ensued between the two over the sugar daddy arrangement.© Japan Today
