Police in Ota, Gunma Prefecture, have arrested a 47-year-old doctor on suspicion of sexually molesting four women while he was giving them health checks last year.
According to police, the four women work for an automobile parts maker. The company’s employees go to the doctor's clinic in Maebashi for an annual health check.
After the health checks on Sept 9, last year, four women, aged 18, 19, 22 and 25, informed senior staff at their company that the doctor had groped their breasts while examining them with a stethoscope.
Police said the doctor, Hideki Yagi, has denied the charge. He was quoted as saying he examined the women’s breasts as part of the health check but did not do so in an inappropriate way.© Japan Today
