TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested a 31-year-old bar host over the alleged assault of a female customer over an unpaid bill in Shinjuku Ward, reports TBS News (Sept. 26).

In June, Takuya Takahashi, employed at a club in the Kabukicho red-light district, allegedly grabbed the hair of the woman, aged in her 30s, inside a separate club and dragged her. He also kicked her.

The woman suffered injuries that will require three weeks to heal, police said.
