This is an assignment for my English Syntax class, I'm supposed to mark noun phrases in Japanese sentences. This is an example given:

Watashi wa [kinou John ga nagutta otoko] wo mita.

The noun phrase is in brackets. However, I don't see why the object particle is left out from the noun phrase. What do you think about this?
