Man Warns Schoolgirl For Using Smartphone, Kicks Her Down The Stairs At Yokohama Kyoukyu Line Station

At Yokohama Kyokyu Line Station, a violent incident has occurred in which a high school girl who was using her smartphone in the priority seating on the train was kicked down the stairs leading to the station platform by a man she disobeyed when he warned her over using her smartphone. The girl’s current condition is unknown.

The incident is thought to have occurred at 4:40pm, and according to what witnesses have said, the girl was warned by a man for playing with her smartphone in the priority seating sections of the train carriage, and the man took her smartphone from her and started shouting angrily in a loud voice.

According to people who were close by, the situation seemed to have been resolved; however, the man was persistent, and continued to shout at the high school girl. Following this, the man apparently kicked the girl down the stairs at Yokohama station when she alighted the train. (There are also some reports that state he pushed her).

The man was restrained by station staff, and taken into custody by police who hurried to the scene, but he insisted that “all I did was tell her off”, and shouted “I’m not aware of having done anything wrong!”.

The man who was in his thirties or forties, was taken away by police, and an investigation is currently underway.

According to witnesses, after being kicked by the man the schoolgirl who was kicked by the man tumbled down the stairs, bleeding from the impact. She then started to convulse. It appears the girl was taken to hospital, but no specifics are known about her condition.

This article will be updated as more specific information becomes available.

Worst case scenario is that she’s going to die from this.


Seems like something you guys on this thread would do.


Bastards like him wouldn’t be able to tell off a high school boy though, would they w

Look I ain’t got no problem with kicking a cheeky bitch,
But you shouldn’t take it too far.

The number of these weird old guys around has definitely increased.
Don’t let him get off on an insanity plea.

You shouldn’t really be using the priority seats for that stuff.
I can’t really sympathize with the woman.

Come on, this has to be an attempted murder


I do think that some guy going around shouting at people is, in terms of manners, the worst in all this, but, well, if you don’t want to get tangled up with the crazies then don’t be messing around with your cell phone in the priority seating.


That girl who sat in the priority seating despite being young must have been out of luck. If you don’t have luck on your side, then it’s best not to sit in those seats.

The thing is, if you kick someone down the stairs there’s a chance that other people might get caught up in it too. There are no bounds to how selfish this crime is.

So this is how it all ends for people with smartphone addictions.


It’s clear that the guy went too far, but there are a lot of stupid bitches out there who take the piss. She was the sacrificial lamb.


An old guy like him has no idea that he’s done something wrong. Even now, he probably thinks that he was in the right.

  • I’ve heard it’s bad manners to speak on the phone in public enclosed spaces but this guy is straight up crazy.

    Probably releasing his pent up anger from an unsatisfying middle-management desk job and an unsatisfied wife at home.

    What a crazy bastard.

  • liee

    crazy old man, just for a fucking seat? wtf is wrong with him

  • bujiebuke

    I gotta applaud the Japanese netizens for not trying to scape goat the issue by saying the guy must be zainichi Korean.

    • risotto

      I’m also surprised the report didn’t mention he was unemployed. Not saying that he is or isn’t, but it seems far too common for these types of crimes in Japan…

      • bujiebuke

        Good point. It seems like whenever they report that someone is or isn’t employed, readers quickly leap and decide the type of person they are regardless of whether employment was pertinent to the story.

  • Hiz Oku

    was someone there in need of the seat? don’t understand why this guy felt it necessary to yell at a girl for using a phone..

    • kazu_no_ko

      I was wondering the sea thing…

  • JEng

    I think some Asian males feel they can get away with verbally abusing Asian females even if they have a daughter and would not like someone to do that to THEIR female family member.

  • I hope she survives

  • UserID01

    I fail to see the problem here unless there’s some missing information. Was the seat requested by someone pregnant, elderly, injured, or holding a child? Why did he feel the need to attack someone sitting in a seat and messing with her phone? So it was a priority seating space. But unless there was actually someone there who was in need of the special seat, it seems the guy was went totally apeshit or no reason.

    • Hankypanky

      Yeah, in my country healthy people sit in the priority seats when there are no priority people around.

  • vonskippy

    Decades of repressed social emotions are starting to erupt – look for it to get a lot worse before it finds it’s balance.

    • Stop the Madness!!

      Watch out Gaijin. Asian societies love to blame foreigners for their ills. I remember the Asian crises clearly.

  • meis

    Good riddance!

  • Lyn

    The weakest dog barks the loudest, bastard took out his rage on a defenseless school girl.

  • John Doberman

    I’ve seen a HS girl shove an old woman down the stairs at Shimokitazawa station, because the closest distance between two points is a straight line and the woman was coming up the steps holding the handrail as this delinquent was flying down the steps to catch an Odakyu train (which come every ten minutes).

    I reckon turnabout is fair play.

  • AxeJapan

    Crazy Japanese.

  • KamenTeacher

    Many crazy Japanese in Japan. Be aware.
