Woman, boyfriend arrested for abusing her one-year-old son


Police in Iizuka, Fukuoka Prefecture, have arrested a 21-year-old woman and her 25-year-old boyfriend on suspicion of beating her one-year-old son last December.

According to police, the mother, Juri Oishi, a self-professed care worker, and her boyfriend, Kai Furuta, a company employee, kicked Oishi’s son in the face with their feet and slapped him several times while he was seated in his baby stroller, Sankei Shimbun reported. The incident occurred in the elevator at a multi-story parking lot after they had returned from taking the child to a hospital to be treated for unspecified reasons.

However, in late December, the child was taken to hospital again and doctors diagnosed him as having suffered an acute subdural hematoma. The hospital notified police about a case of possible child abuse.

Police said the three lived in a house with Furuta’s two children.

The kind of work a person does, doesn't equate to the heinous crime they commit. Whether she's a 'care worker ' or a CEO, it's still a heinous crime

Another one? These always remind me of the lion kingdom where male adults try to kill other males’ offsprings.

She’s a filthy scumbag who’s obviously glossing over the foul nature of her work, and he’s lower than pond scum.

But hey, we read one of these stories every week .

You have to wonder what state of mind creeps like this are in and what motivates them to kick a one year old in the head while he’s strapped into stroller. It’s just sick!

Self professed "care worker" means prostitute right?

Care worker = soap land or "health"

Parenting, is a trying thing. Some people, are too young & inexperienced to have the patience / tolerance to be Parents - so this story will repeat itself time and time again. Sad truth.

Another day, another child abuse case. I know child abuse can happen anywhere in the world but in Japan it seems disproportionately high? That, or it just makes the news more here?

Either way, lock these monsters up and throw away the key.

This is just awfully sad. That poor little boy. Who hits/kicks a baby? :(

Only another baby!

If there is a hell it must have a special place for people who abuse babies and toddlers.
