TN woman claims she was sexually assaulted by toy at hibachi restaurant

MURFREESBORO, TN (WCMH) –A Tennessee woman claims she was sexually assaulted by a toy while eating at a hibachi restaurant.

It happened at the Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse outside of Nashville. The toy in question is a plastic figure of a boy that squirts water when its toy pants are lowered. It’s used as part of the tableside cooking show that Hibachi restaurants are known for.

The owner of the restaurant admits that the other night, one of the chefs shot some water in the face of one of his customers.

“it peed on me, basically. Out of his… wee-wee area,” Isabelle Lassiter told WTVF.

Lassiter and her husband, James Lassiter were in town on a job from Texas. They say they were mortified when the chef essentially made the toy urinate water on Isabelle. They were so upset, they called police.

“It was a sexual-style assault on my wife,” said James. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
