Police in Tokyo have arrested a 47-year-old man on suspicion of molesting an elementary school girl in a bookstore in July.
According to police, Takahiro Ishikawa, who drives a taxi for residents of nursing homes, followed the girl into the store, Sankei Shimbun reported. The girl had gone into the store to wait for her mother. While she was crouched down, browsing through a book, Ishikawa also crouched down beside her and placed his hand up her dress.
The girl later told her mother what happened. Police said Ishikawa was identified from store surveillance camera footage.
Police said Ishikawa, who was arrested on Friday, has refused to discuss the incident until he meets with a lawyer.© Japan Today
