61-year-old man arrested for kidnapping three kids in Yokohama

15 Comments

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.”

I am not going to criticise the cops at the moment, but it would be good to know if they turned over his place to look for any contact details of others who enjoy such revolting activities.

Also, when this goes to trial, I hope the guy gets sentenced with the proviso that he freely be allowed to mix with the general prison population.

Need a lot more for this to be accurate. like, did they find porn in his home? did the kids get the ice cream? did he really kidnap nap them? are we sure of all the details? 30 mins seems like a really short time. anyway, if the guy did it, hang him.

Do they teach do not talk to strangers in Japan? I think they are so much into the obedience thing that they lose the use of common sense. Then they might say, we did it because we were scared that he would hurt us if we did not do it.

exactly. My son is 3 now and we are telling home constantly never to talk with strangers and to run and scream if someone tries to touch him. Its not a nice thing to do to take away your child innocence and to install fear into them but the potential alternatives are much worse to contemplate.

If he is 61 I would check for cold cases involving child abductions and molesting. If he has a library of kiddy porn , he probably have done it to other children. Chester the child molester !!!!

"I just asked them to wash their hands and feet in the bathroom" yeah, that's it. If you believe that I'm the broker for Tokyo tower in case you'd like to make me an offer.

He must be sick in his head, should give him some 'aspros,' and if he doesn't get better send him to shrink to adjust his brains.
