A woman was arrested on charges of attempted murder after trying to strangle her husband with a necktie for not giving her a gift, police in Japan said.

Osaka Police said that they arrested 43-year-old Mie Nishiyama, after being accused of trying to kill her husband in the family home.

Nishiyama was arrested by police officers who came to the couple’s home early on Monday, after receiving a call about a domestic violence incident.

The 31-year-old husband suffered minor injuries, police said.

During questioning, Nishiyama admitted to tying a necktie around her husband’s neck, but denied trying to kill him.

Nishiyama said that she was upset that he had not given her a gift on Saturday.
