Teacher Breaks Student's Jaw Over Late Lunch

An elementary school teacher in Tokyo was arrested after he left a fourth-grade student with a broken jaw and injuries requiring eight stitches. In the kind of case that more often than not never reaches the police, Ichiyo Arai (52) initially said that he had injured the boy by accident but later told police he had punched him several times. The boy failed to obey Arai's instructions to clear up his classroom after finishing his lunch late. Arai took him to a lavatory where the assault took place. It is reportedly not his first attack on a student. The criminal complaint was filed by the boy's parents almost two weeks after the incident.
