Police on Tuesday arrested a man in Takamatsu, Kagawa Prefecture, on suspicion of attempting to kidnap two elementary school girls with the intent to commit obscene acts. Police said the 58-year-old unemployed man, identified as Kiyotaka Miura, took the third grade girls by the hand and led them as far as the front door of his home on Oct 3.
Police said the girls told them that Miura approached them on a road near his house and said, "Give me a kiss. Why don't you come play at uncle's house?" before grabbing them both by the hand.
According to police, Miura has denied there was any lewd intent behind his actions.© Compiled from news reports
