Police in Atsugi, Kanagawa Prefecture, said Friday they have arrested a 48-year-old man on suspicion of sexually molesting an elementary school boy in a toilet at a game center in Hachioji, Tokyo, last month.
According to police, Masaki Ishidao, a company employee, has admitted to the charge. Police said he approached the boy and asked him if he’d like to be the model for a statue of an angel he was carving and he’d like to take some photos of him, Fuji TV reported. He then took the boy to a multi-purpose toilet where he allegedly molested him for about three minutes and filmed the incident with his smartphone. Ishidao gave the boy 3,000 yen.
The boy reported what happened to his parents. Police identified Ishidao from store surveillance camera footage.
Police said they found images of other young boys on Ishidao’s smartphone.© Japan Today
