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.

uhh I didn't say he was a foreigner.
I just thought, before reading this news, that the police was purposely putting the blame on a foreigner, or at least someone who didn't look japanese to japanese people.

Now of course if he is guilty he should be prosecuted. I didn't wanted to start wank, either.
