Ebizo's alleged assailant arrested



Police arrested on Friday a 26-year-old man for allegedly assaulting top kabuki performer Ichikawa Ebizo at a bar in Tokyo in late November.

The Metropolitan Police Department said the man, identified as Rion Ito, a resident of Tokyo, owned up to the assault. He was quoted as saying: "It's true that I punched him. I'll provide details after I've cleared my mind."

Ebizo, 33, at an earlier news conference denied engaging in any act of violence.

Investigative sources alleged that Ito, a former member of a motorcycle gang, punched Ebizo in the face in the early morning of Nov. 25 at a bar in Tokyo's Nishiazabu district and caused him to sustain heavy injuries, including a broken cheek bone.

yeah it was a mistake, I'm very sorry for that, it wasn't intentional.
But regardless if he is really a foreigner my point is that I expected the culprit to look japanese and the Bob Sapp-like description to be just an exaggeration. I'm not saying the man looks like Bob Sapp, because he doesn't, at all, just that I expected a different outcome. Either way, we'll have to wait and see how this ends.

I knew it saw it somewhere! The early reports did indeed say he described his attacker as half-american.
