Police in Toyohashi, Aichi Prefecture, have arrested a 31-year-old man for abusing his 21-year-old girlfriend’s one-year-old son.

Police said they have charged the woman’s boyfriend, Yoshimitsu Oishi, with inflicting bodily harm on the child by violently shaking his head which resulted in a serious cerebral contusion.

The boy’s mother went out prior to the incident. Oishi was quoted by police as saying that Yuto wouldn’t stop crying, so he kept on shaking him.

Apr. 04, 2012 – OSAKA

Police in Izumi, Osaka Prefecture, said Tuesday they have arrested a 41-year-old man for allegedly punching his girlfriend’s four-year-old son in the face.

The suspect, identified as Yoshiyuki Suzuki, works as a security guard. He is accused of hitting the boy in the face and head with an open hand and a back scratcher on multiple occasions between Feb 5 and 12, NTV reported. Police say large bruises were visible around the boy’s eyes and that scratches were also found on his posterior. Doctors expect it will take around two weeks for the boy’s injuries to heal.

Police believe the abuse was ongoing. The mistreatment came to light after a neighbor reported hearing the sounds of a child being beaten. The caller told the emergency operator that it was not the first time the sounds had been heard, according to NTV.

During police questioning, the boy’s mother, 26, told investigators that they started living together in September of last year, but the abuse started at the beginning of this year. She also told police that the boy had been stripped naked and locked out on the balcony as punishment, NTV said.

According to police, Suzuki said he was disciplining the boy, who was taken into protective custody last month.
