Crime Nov. 10, 2011  OSAKA —

A 33-year-old man in Osaka has been arrested for allegedly scalding his one-month-old son with boiling water, police said Wednesday.

According to police, on Nov 6 at around 9:30 p.m., Hisayoshi Genno, a security guard living in Toyonaka, doused his baby son with boiling water in the shower, causing serious burns to his lower back and groin, NTV reported. Afterward, Genno—who lives with his 25-year-old girlfriend, son and daughter—took the baby to a local family doctor, but the child’s injuries were so severe, he was transferred to a hospital where he is currently undergoing treatment in an intensive care unit.

One local resident was quoted by NTV as saying that he often saw Genno walking hand in hand with his daughter and that he seemed to like children. However, other residents in the apartment block in which the family live said that recently the man would often shout at children playing outside and tell them to be quiet.
