An 80-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of stalking a 76-year-old woman at her workplace in Sakura, Tochigi Prefecture.
According to police, Hiromasa Obata violated a restraining order after he went into a restaurant where the woman was working on Jan 14, Fuji TV reported. The woman had previously filed a complaint about Obata stalking her, resulting in the restraining order being issued.
Police said Obata has denied the charge and quoted him as saying, “I didn’t go into the restaurant. I was just passing by.”© Japan Today
