A 61-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday for kidnapping three kids in Yokohama on Oct 11. Police believe the man kidnapped them for the purpose of making child porn.
Mitsuo Uedo was arrested for allegedly taking a girl, 8, and two brothers, 8 and 6, to his home around noon after he spoke to them while they were playing by a river. Police said the children told them the man offered to buy ice creams for them.
Uedo released the children 30 minutes later but they told their parents that they were requested to get undressed in his bathroom and forced to watch pornographic movies.
Ueda was quoted by police as saying, “I didn't force them to get undressed. I just told them to wash their hands and feet in the bathroom.”© Japan Today
