A 46-year-old man was arrested for abducting a minor on Monday night, after he asked a junior high school girl into his car to go shopping and drove her around for about 6 hours, police said Tuesday.
Police said Masahiro Kobayashi called out to the girl from his car in Kunohe District at around 10 a.m. Monday, asking her if she wanted to go shopping. The girl got in the car and got out again about 6 hours later, calling police shortly after. She was not injured.
Given a description of Kobayashi’s car and his appearance, police went to his home that night, where he was arrested. He has admitted to the allegations but further details such as motive have not been revealed yet.© News reports
