TOKYO, March 27 (Itar-Tass) – Two Russian female citizens, who were detained in the Japanese capital this week, were brought to the detention centre, the local police told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The Russian female citizens were staying with their two children, who were passed to their father, who is a husband of one arrested woman.
The husbands of both women are Japanese citizens.
The consular department of the Russian Embassy in Tokyo is following the investigation of this incident. “We are keeping in touch with the police department. The investigation of the incident continues,” an official from the Russian consular department told Itar-Tass before.
The incident occurred on Monday, March 25 in the Tokyo district Roppongi, which is one of the main entertainment centres in the Japanese capital, which enjoys a broad popularity among foreign tourists. The police reported that two Russian female citizens aged about 30 years refused to pay about 1,500 yens (a little bit less than 15 dollars) to the taxi driver and escaped from the taxi. The taxi driver was trying to pursue them, but a Russian female citizen beat him up with the umbrella. The injured party testified that he has got no less than ten strikes with the umbrella. The policemen staying nearby detained the Russian female citizens for hooliganism. The law enforcement agencies reported that they did not plead guilty at the first interrogation.
