Between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m., Aguri Yoshiura, a company employee, is alleged to have repeatedly beat his acquaintance, 27, in the head at parlor Cote D’ Azur, located near JR Kichijoji Station.
The victim, who lost consciousness at one point, suffered broken bones in his face. His injuries are expected to require one month to heal, according to the Musashino Police Station.
