A 38-year-old man was arrested Monday in Kawagoe, Saitama Prefecture, on suspicion of indecent assault after he allegedly molested a fourth grade primary schoolgirl at a shopping center in Tsurugashima. The suspect was identified as Seiichiro Kojima, a temp worker.
According to police, the assault took place on Sunday at around 3:30 p.m. when the girl from Sakado in the same prefecture had been playing alone in a games arcade. She told police that a man had come up behind her and grabbed at her breasts. She yelled out "Chikan" (pervert), and the man fled.
Four workers at nearby stores gave chase and subdued Kojima about 100 meters away. He was handed over to police shortly after. Police said that Kojima was in an extremely agitated state.© News reports
