Once inside, police said Kanome sexually assaulted the girl and then forced her to wash her uniform in an attempt to remove any evidence of the assault.
Police said Kanome, who was identified through building surveillance camera footage, has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying he assaulted the girl because he was stressed out from his job© Japan Today
