This footage shows a man running down the road and then smashing his fists into a woman motorist’s windscreen because he was feeling “irritated”.
The video was released by Aichi Prefectural Police who said it was shot in Toyoake City located in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture.
They said the footage was shot just after midday when at the time of it being published an unknown man suddenly ran round the corner and attacked the car driven by a 51-year-old woman, causing the glass of her windscreen to break. The woman was not named.
After the footage was released, the man was identified as 28-year-old Takashi Kizaki, of no known occupation, who was seen in a white T-shirt and blue jeans when he carried out the attack.
Also leaps onto the bonnet of the car as he repeatedly rained blows on the glass, and he also appears to have a small rock in his right hand.
He has been arrested on charges of damaging property, and reportedly said he was trying to vent his frustrations at the fact that he had suffered “poor physical health” which had resulted in him “becoming irritated.”
He turned himself into police when he saw the footage was being shared widely, turning up at the police station with his parents who had also been made aware that the footage was circulating.
He also admitted a short while earlier kicking the license plate of another car also driven by a woman.
Neither of the women suffered any physical harm as a result of his attacks but both were shocked.
