A 29-year-old Japanese man has been arrested after burning their house to ground because of a fight with his mother about Gundam model kits.



Takabe Yoshifumi, is a 29-year-old factory worker from a town near Kobe, Japan, was arrested on Sunday October 4, 2009 , 2:00 PM after he burned down the house where he and his mother lived in.


The suspect told the police that he set his room on fire in a suicide attempt while upset after he learned that his mother had thrown away his "valuable" Gundam model kits. Even though Takanabe intended to kill himself, both him and his 55-year-old mother managed to escape the house unharmed. Though, the partially wooden two-story, 2,700 sq. ft. house had nothing left to offer them to stay in for the night after the incident.
