42-year-old Takahiro Miki was arrested by the police in Tokyo, Japan after he used a kitchen knife to slash his 74-year-old mother’s throat because she told him to get a job before she retires.
Two days before the incident, she told him that she didnâ€™t know how long she would be well enough to work, so he needed to get a job as well. He then attacked his mother while she was getting ready for work on June 26th. The incident took place at their apartment in Tokyoâ€™s Adachi Ward.
The mother has been admitted to a hospital and is in stable condition.
Miki has been charged with one count of attempted murder.
