Police in Tokyo's Ota Ward said Monday they have arrested a 29-year-old woman on suspicion of attempted murder after she slashed her husband because he didn't wash his hands after using the toilet.
According to police, the woman, identified as Emi Mamiya, got into an argument with her 34-year-old husband in the second-floor apartment at around 1 p.m. Sunday, Sankei reported. The woman told police later that she got mad at her husband because he was going to touch their 3-year-old son without having washed his hands after using the toilet. She also complained that he left the toilet smelly and that her child could not use it in that condition.
Police said she threatened her husband with an 18-cm-long knife and when he dared her to kill him, she slashed his left cheek.
A passerby who heard the argument called police.
Mamiya told police she and her husband had often quarreled about his toilet manners and that she was fed up with him.© Japan Today
