According to police, the incident occurred at around 7:50 p.m. on Saturday at the store in Nagata Ward, Fuji TV reported. When the store manager asked the woman to wear a face mask as a measure against the coronavirus, the woman refused and hit him in the face.

Another employee pushed an alarm button which summoned police. Police said the woman, whose name and age have not been released, appeared to be drunk at the time of her arrest.

Good job from the stuff at the convenience store.

But unfortunately he asked the "wrong" woman.

As soon as I started reading the article I said to myself, “I bet she was drunk.” Low and behold, there it is. Right at the end of the article.

LOL, you got to laugh as nowadays women are more butch than men are even at 50 and drunk... And he wasn't able to defend himself from a 50 year old drunk woman. Jesus, what is the world coming to...

It's okay, she was an intersectional feminist and the man represented the patriarchy is so it's all fine

Ah, the good old "I was drunk".

As for the masks, it is reasonable for the shop to ask her to wear one while inside. It is not like they were dictating her dress code 24/24.

A woman doesn’t do such a thing. She would have enough contenance or self-constrain and would just shortly wear that damned demanded face mask. And a real lady wouldn’t even talk with him, leave that store and have their shopping wishes express delivered to her mansion. So, how really to describe that kind of customer? lol

Convenience store workers do not get paid enough, having to put up with crap like this.

"appeared to be drunk at the time of her arrest".

Oh, being drunk is excuse for nearly anything. Maybe except murder and DUI.

This and knowing that コンビニ workers are considered being almost trash (especially when from SE Asia), this will end her comming to apologise few times, bow few times and that'll be it.

I drove through Nagata last month and the pedestrians and bicyclists seemed not to worry too much about any rules of the road.and knowing the area I am

not surprised this happened.

She wasn’t very good at masking her anger. Good on him for telling her to wear one though. I feel bad for such workers having to deal with a myriad of customers each day.

I couldn't help but laugh while reading the article. If the culprit was a man, that was not the case though.

Perhaps she didn’t see the poster at Toei Station in JToday’s -Picture of the Day- “Beer beating”

A poster in a Toei subway line station in Tokyo warns against alcohol-fueled violence. -*

I just wonder if the "traditional ...I don't remember I was drunk" will work for the woman?

Drunk seems to be the "BAIL" bond to get out of jail. Just say you were drunk or don't remember, and you get out of jail free!!

I don't know? I vividly recall many years ago a petite Filippina beating the living daylights out of her Navy husband in front of the local 7-11.

She sounds like a catch. A 50 year old piece of trash wandering around the streets drunk. Loser.

All you're doing is showing how little you actually know about feminism.

Drunk. Well she has the best excuse. (Only in Japan, of course).

She must be punished even "appeared to be drunk at the time of her arrest."

No excuse

LOL. I would have punched back! Important to be brave when dealing in situation like this.

Those in work in public facing jobs have to put up with this kind of behaviour everyday, made worse now as shop workers are a high risk group for catching Covid.

I was absolutely shocked when I clicked on this link and found it wasn't in Saitama! What's Kobe coming to??
