On the afternoon of March 3, a 67-year-old woman was arrested for slapping a male customer in his 20s in the face in a 100-yen store in a major commercial facility in Chuo-ku, Sapporo.
Arrested on suspicion of assault was a 67-year-old, unemployed woman living in Odori Higashi, Chuo-ku, Sapporo.
According to the police, at the time of the incident, the woman had finished shopping at the store and was waiting in the checkout line. The man then cut in line, which caused her to raise her voice at him and commit the offense.
The man’s brother, who was present at the time, reported to the police that the woman indeed had slapped the man in the face. The woman was arrested on the spot.
The man explained that his cutting the line was not on purpose but only accidentally. When questioned, the 67-year-old woman denied the charges, saying: “I did not assault him. I wanted to raise my hand to get him out of the line, but then it just accidentally hit his face.”
The police are continuing to investigate the case in detail.
