It wasnt you Mr Takuya Watanabe ... maybe it was ms Tomoyo Watanabe they should be questioning instead.

Someone needs to teach this cross dresser some ladylike behaviour...

Hope the kids wernt too traumatized and make a full recovery.

"that wasn’t me" No, it was some other 42 year old unemployed cross-dresser with long well-kept hair living in your neighborhood.

Sounds like a classic case of 'he said, she-he said'.

Was he in a bodysuit?

Wow, this report is hopelessly biased. The boy describes a person with long well-kept hair and dressed in women's clothing, the child does NOT name Watanabe. This could be a case of mistaken identity. It might even be a masculine looking woman.

Have they had an identity to parade for the children? Is there any forensic evidence? Does Watanabe have an alibi? Or is this just a case of the cops finding the nearest tranny and assuming that they're guilty.

Takuya Watanabe, is accused that on Feb 12th, whilst being dressed as a woman, he assaulted the 3 boys, the Police authorities feel obliged to publish the names and all the detailed of the alleged victims and perpetrators of these offence even though there is no mention of charges having been brought let alone obtained a conviction, remarkable!?

So what has happened in the intervening two months: Feb to April?

Guess it couldn't have been Matsko Deluxe?

Was it really a crossdresser or a woman that looks like a crossdressing man?

hahaha, I really doubt Matsuko Deluxe would do this, he would pay $$ to get his loving! But this fool or crazy or anyway since he is already out there in YOKOSUKA, I am sure there are plenty of LONELY Navy guys who would love to have a Japanese transsexual sex slave!

How can you be sure of that?

What a nutcase...

Please don't be so quick to convict! This is based on a report and description posted to a public bulletin board. I see no evidence of any sort. Not even a positive ID. Did the kids go to the police? Was there evidence that an attack even happened? If so, were the boys, perhaps, throwing rocks at the "weirdo"? (I've sadly seen a pack of young boys this age taunting a homeless guy in a nearby park until he'd chase then with his broom, which they found hilarious. The next day they went back and threw scalding water on him while he slept).

Yeah, it's highly possible that the crossdresser was attacked or insulted first.

I hope not all cross-dressers are portrayed as kiddy fiddlers and the sort.

Not that I am a cross-dresser myself

He's a cross dresser, of course he won't tell the truth.
