CRIME SEP. 19, 2012 – OSAKA —
Police said Tuesday they have arrested a man who threw boiling water at his 12-year-old son at their home in Hironoku, Osaka. The boy sustained severe burns which will take about three weeks to heal, police said.

According to police, the attack took place on Monday at about 8:30 p.m. The suspect, Yasunori Saeki, 56, has admitted to the charge, Fuji TV reported. He was quoted as saying that he got mad because he told his son to go and buy some groceries and he didn’t. After throwing a cup of boiling water in his son’s face, he took the boy to a hospital, where staff notified police.

This is the second time that Saeki, who works as a taxi driver, has been implicated in a domestic abuse case. Last December, a child consultation center questioned him about injuring his second son by hitting his head against the wall. Saeki promised never to do it again, the center said.
