The father of celebrity Kyoko Kano has been arrested for intimidating her in Tokyo, police said.

Teruo Koyama, 72, a resident of Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, who claims to be self-employed, stands accused of violating the Law concerning Punishment for Physical Violence.

Local police are grilling Koyama over the motives for his crime, suspecting that he had demanded money from the victim.

At around 10 p.m. on Tuesday, Koyama ambushed 45-year-old Kano at the underground parking lot of an apartment complex in Minato-ku where she lives, and threatened her by swinging around an umbrella, local police said.

Kyoko Kano and her celebrity sister Mika Kano are popularly known as the "Kano Sisters."
