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.

You are aware this is arama, not a Yamapi comm, right?

Or are you disappointed no one punched Yamapi? Because that's funnier than what you probably meant.

TBH I'm surprised it's actually an african-american guy, I was expecting a japanese one, bosozoku hair and all.
meh I just thought it was the old "let put the blame in foreigners" mentality, which yeah, it's still present in this case, but uhhhh

Where does it say he's American? I'd guess he's African-Japanese since his name is Ito Rion and he's a Tokyo resident O.o

He looks like a mix between a chipmunk and Eun Jiwon.
