disgusting. He had no business going anywhere near someone elses child.

I hope the parents of his grandchild take note...

what is it with public servants?

Imagine him trying to explain what happened to his own family. He was there with his own grandchild. How to destroy your family, lose your job, and become a criminal all in one easy step.

The 'being in a public toilet with her' makes the "I didn't do anything obscene" part even more unlikely :-/

A public servant molests 9 year old girl in a public toilet Is bad publicity.

TBS news (Japanese) reports that the girl needed to use the restroom, so Omachi offered to take her there. He didn't tell the police that he "patted the girl" but rather, according to the report, that he "wiped the girl" 「拭いてあげただけだ」.

A 9 year old girl can wipe herself. Now if she was 4 or 5 I'd say that there was some doubt, but a 9 year old has absolutely no need for any assistance, apart from maybe someone showing her where the toilets are and waiting within earshot in case she has a problem.

No excuse for this guy whatsoever. Lock him up.

THey really don't need to report this in the media... old gramps having a little accident saves a lot of red tape!

This fool was very close to retirement and getting the big chunk of money that retired public servants get. What an idiot

Dude, touching a 9 year old girl on her "lower body" is obscene!

It is to be hoped - if the allegation is proven beyond reasonable doubt - that this (alleged) child sexual abuser goes to prison for a very long time - and of course, that he is disowned by his entire family.

Hoping the innocent little girl will eventually recover mentally from this sexual assault.

Why couldn't the mother of the girl take her to the bathroom? Too busy watching the game?

A 9 year old doesn't need help going to the bathroom. Keep him away from his grandchildren. No unsupervised visits after this.

I don't know if you were trying to make a joke on a play of words, but the topic is anything but funny. Apologies if I misinterpreted your intention.

He obviously was trying to act like an innocent man. Dude my 2 year old students don't need me to wipe them..a 9 year old sure as hell doesn't.

While I was reading this article, all I could do was think of my daughter, and how I would pound the living hell out of this child molesting swine if it had been my kid. There is no way he would walk away from this without a scratch on him.

The more I read stories like this the more paranoid I get about my kids.

I man in a park WITH his granddaughter? Most people would probably assume he's safe.

Can't assume anything about anyone these days.
