A 28-year-old Yokohama resident was arrested yesterday for strangling his next-door neighbour.
It seems Choei Yohena turned off the main gas tap in front of his neighbour’s apartment, and then when the unsuspecting man came out to see what the problem was, Yohena swiftly strangled him from behind.
During police questioning, Yohena said that his neighbour made too much noise, and had been doing so for the last month and a half. But the problem wasn’t loud music, merriment, or even mating. No, it seems that the unfortunate victim merely opened and closed doors in a loud manner.
A just cause for strangulation? Probably not eh?
