Police in Usa, Osaka Prefecture, have arrested a man on suspicion of kidnapping a teenage girl he met through an online game.
According to police, Naoya Uemura, a construction worker, became acquainted with the girl, who lives in Osaka Prefecture, while playing an online game, Sankei Shimbun. Police said Uemura lured her to visit Usa by bus. He picked her up and took her to his home where he kept her confined between Aug 22 and Sept 12.
The girl’s mother contacted police when she failed to return home on Aug 22 and filed a missing person's report. Investigators managed to trace her whereabouts to Uemura’s home on Sept 12 after analyzing surveillance camera footage at the bus station, showing him meeting the girl.
