TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Wednesday announced the arrest of a female sex worker for allegedly threatening to kill a celebrity doctor two months ago, reports Nippon News Network (Nov. 26).
On September 10, Haruna Yokoyama, a 23-year-old employee in the fuzoku trade, allegedly posted a message on an Internet bulletin board saying she would murder Eriko Wakisaka.
“If you don’t commit suicide, it seems you’ll be killed,” wrote Yokoyama, who resides in Adachi Ward. “Your head will be cut off.”
Yokoyama has reportedly admitted to the allegations, telling officers from the Meguro Police Station that she and Wakisaka engaged in a dispute at a host club in the Kabukicho entertainment area of Shinjuku Ward.
In 2012, Wakisaka, 35, opened Rico Clinic in Meguro. She often appears on television variety programs to speak about health-related topics.
