The Deaf homeless man used to sleep on the bench and stayed in the park.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department juvenile crime section and the Kanda police station arrested a junior high school student (14) from Urayasu City, Chiba Prefecture on the suspicion of injury of the Deaf man (67) by sprinkling the hot water which caused a large burn.
According to police officials, the schoolboy admits the suspicion, saying that "The reaction that the old man showed looked so funny".
The boy put about a half litter of hot water into the paper carton in the nearby convenience store, and then went to the park in Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo on September 18 around 19:25 where the homeless was sleeping on the bench. The boy poured it on the neck of the homeless, who was hospitalized for the one-month treatment of the burn over the neck and shoulder.
