Police in Tokyo have arrested a 24-year-old man, who was once a participant in the University of Tokyo’s “Mr Todai” contest, on suspicion of raping a woman at his apartment in Shinjuku Ward. Police said the suspect, Daiki Inai, has denied the charge, claiming he “doesn’t remember” the alleged incident, Fuji TV reported Wednesday.
According to police, the alleged rape occurred in September, while Inai was still a student of the University of Tokyo’s Department of Economics.
Police say that on Sept 15, Inai took a woman in her 30s to his residence in a high-rise condominium, where he allegedly raped her. Inai was arrested that same day and was formally charged with rape on Oct 5. Currently, he is out of jail on bail.
In 2014, Inai participated in the “Mr Tokyo (Todai) University Contest” and was one of the five finalists introduced on a special internet site.© Japan Today
