A man was arrested after allegedly kicking a woman who was listening to music on her smartphone while walking on a street in the suburbs of Tokyo, police said Monday.
Shoichi Nagai, 55, was arrested Friday for alleged violent behavior, which he has denied, the police said.
According to the police, Nagai was riding a bicycle on the street Thursday in Machida city, when he and the woman almost ran into each other. Nagai criticized her for using the smartphone and threatened her by saying, “I’m a yakuza,” while showing his tattoo on the chest.
The police have not confirmed whether the woman was looking at the screen of her smartphone at the time of the incident.
“I told her it was dangerous to use a smartphone while walking, but she didn’t apologize,” Nagai told the police.
