What a weird thing to do! I'm sure she feels "safe" in this "safe" country now!

Hopefully the teenage girl is going to be okay. That low-life should have the book thrown at him and never be able to walk free.

This is a shock that this could occur in Japan which is one of the safest countries in the world and even more shocking that this could occur in the safest town in the whole country of Japan.

Hope the poor girl is OK.
