Man arrested for molesting 2 young girls in park


Police in Musashimurayama, Tokyo, have arrested a 45-year-old man on suspicion of sexually molesting two elementary school girls in a park in January.

According to police, Kenji Ueda, a truck driver, molested the two girls at a park at around 5 p.m. on Jan 31, Sankei Shimbun reported.

Police said Ueda called out to the girls who were playing in the park unsupervised. He told them, “It’s getting cold. Come with me and I’ll take you home.”

Ueda allegedly then fondled the girls’ bodies before letting them go. One of the girls told her father what happened when she got home and he called 110.

Police said Ueda, who was identified through an analysis of surveillance camera footage, has admitted to touching one girl but not the other.

These people are sick and need to be dealt with. The only thing I hate more than rapist are pedophiles and people that victimize children.

I would have called the cops for his sake, because if it were my daughter, he would need the cops to stop me from from inflicting serious bodily damage on him.

I hope there’s a special place in hell for people who mess with kids. Sick

This is why we ALWAYS have our son under our supervision except when he's at his kindergarten. Its creepos like this that makes life for kids dangerous to play outside.

no, they are all equally bad and deserve to be neutered and imprisoned for a really long time.

but it's also the parent's responsibility to teach their kids to never trust, talk to or follow strangers. i have had this conversation with my 7 and 5-year-old for the past 2 years now.

My 8-year old daughter went to school in Musashimuriyama up until October 2019. She was walking home from school one day when a man in a white box van pulled up next to her. He said that it was hot outside and that she should get in so that he could give her a ride home. Fortunately she sensed the danger, started screaming, and ran into the nearest 7-11. We filed a police report, but were told that since he didn't try to force her into the van, that they couldn't do anything about it and weren't going to investigate it. This incident and one other led us to putting our daughter in a different school. I wonder if this is the same guy. If it is, I can't help but blame the police for not taking more action in my daughter's case.

That sounds like the Japanese police, reactive not proactive.

He is the reason why girls grow up not trusting men. Pervert!

"Japan is a safety country!"

Keep believing that sheep, keep believing.

How many more kids and even families need to suffer before we finally we get a sexual predator list online, at schools and in employment offices?

Everyone : "Japan is a safe country!"

Me : "Think for yourself! Don't be sheep!"
