Police in Tokyo said Saturday they have arrested a 24-year-old clerk at the Tokyo District Court and a 39-year-old employee of the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ on suspicion of molesting a woman in her 20s on the subway.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 8 a.m. on Friday on the subway Tozai line. TV Asahi quoted police as saying the two suspects stood in front and behind the woman and touched her buttocks, breasts, and lower abdomen.
When train arrived at Monzen-nakacho station and the doors opened, a man who had witnessed the incident seized one suspect, while the woman grabbed the other.
Police said the pair have denied the allegations, saying they don't know each other. They were quoted as saying that because the train was packed during the morning rush hour, if there was any contact with the woman, it was unintentional.© Japan Today
