Police said Tuesday they have arrested a 20-year-old woman in Okayama for the attempted murder of her three-month-old daughter.

Tomomi Takimura was arrested at her home on Monday after she called the emergency services at around 3 p.m. and told them that she had strangled her baby. Emergency services informed the police who took Takimura into custody, according to a TBS report.

During police questioning, Takimura was quoted as saying that she had slapped and strangled her baby daughter because she wouldn’t stop crying.
