Police in Tokyo have arrested a 26-year-old man on suspicion of sexual assault after he forcibly kissed a woman and groped her breasts.
According to police, the assault occurred at around 1 a.m. on May 9 in Kita Ward. Fuji TV reported that the suspect, Yuichi Ikeda, called out to the woman, who is in her 20s, as she left JR Oji Station and suggested, “Why don’t we exchange contact information?” When the woman refused his offer, Ikeda followed her for 200 meters and pulled her behind a parked car on the grounds of an apartment building where he allegedly kissed and groped her.
Police said Ikeda was identified through street surveillance camera footage. He was quoted by police as saying he was drunk at the time and can’t recall a thing about the incident.© Japan Today
