KUMAMOTO — Nov. 11th, 2014

Police in Takamori, Kumamoto Prefecture, said Monday they have arrested a 46-year-old man for abusing his one-year-old daughter after he forced her to sit on a kerosene heater, burning her legs and buttocks.

Police said the incident occurred late last month and identified the suspect as Hisao Fukuyama, who lives with his wife and three children.

Fukuyama was quoted by police as saying that he disciplined his daughter in front of the rest of the family because she wouldn’t do as she was told, NTV reported.

Meanwhile, local media reported Monday that Fukuyama’s wife consulted police last month about his abuse.
