A 70-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday for molesting a 17-year-old high school girl in his car in Kawagoe City, Saitama Prefecture. Masahira Arai was arrested for allegedly touching the girl's breasts and kissing her in his car at around 2:20 p.m. on Monday.
According to police, Arai met the girl at a game center and offered to drive her to Kawagoe station. The girl told police that once they were in the car, he told her he would like to have dinner with her and started touching her. The victim got out of the car and reported the man to police later.
Arai has admitted to the allegations and was quoted by police as saying, “I couldn't resist touching her because she was cute.”© Japan Today
