14 Comments

Police in Tokyo have arrested a 38-year-old man on suspicion of sexually molesting an elementary school girl in a park.

According to police, the incident occurred early in the evening on Aug 28 at a park in Adachi Ward, Fuji TV reported. The girl had come to the park with her mother and a friend to let off fireworks.

Police said when the girl got separated from her friend and her mother, the suspect, Jun Takeshima, approached her and asked what she was doing. After that, he allegedly fondled her breasts. The girl ran back to her mother and told her what happened.

Police said Takeshima was identified after an analysis of park surveillance camera footage. They said he has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying he was interested in young girls and wanted to touch them.

Ffs. Get a blowup doll and indulge in your sick proclivities at home. That poor girl. There's something seriously wrong with some of the men in Japan - sexually assaulting minors; stealing women's underwear; groping women on trains. Women are not pieces of meat for you a**holes to do you as please. Toss the Pos in jail and make sure he never sees the light of day again.

Poor child. Let’s hope she’s given the counseling she needs and that the local community steps up their vigilance and intolerance for such deviants.

They're pretty straightforward and to the point, aren't they?

CCTV footage, an admission to the crime, an admitted pedophilic propensity toward children and, one known incident? - This seems enough for a criminal conviction, appropriate sentencing and punishment to ‘fit the severity of the crime’(sexual assault on a child). Then, followed by a lifetime of continued, rehabilitative(?) counseling and monitored community parole. (38years old and surprisingly, “occupation” is not mentioned.)

This is a perfect example of where a child sex offenders national list is needed. Yes, for all we know it may have been a first time offense, if so it wouldn’t have stopped this situation. But, the suspect openly acknowledges he has a desire and that he clearly can’t stop himself acting on it if the opportunity arises (assuming he wasn’t already in the park for that purpose; if so that adds an extra predatory seeking behavior to it). As he will be back in society soon enough, without a child offenders list there’s no way to keep tabs on him or to do a background check on him.

These crimes are starting to be quite common in Japan now. Similar to the familial killings in Japan?

There it is AGAIN: “Adachi-Ku”..did this happen in Kita Senju ?

Why are we deliberately vague where this occurred?..bad for business?

Why is the government not taking action against all these ‘I couldn’t help it’ weirdos? Definitely needs to be a sex offenders list..

I thought so too. I doubt it is Kita Senju though. I think they arrested him from a crime in August. Yahoo news in Japanese didn't list the exact location either.

OK, I have no sympathy for the pervert, but does an elementary school age girl even have breasts? Sounds weird to me.

What a perv and the worst thing is that since he's admitting it, he'll just get a slap on the wrist and off he goes to the streets again.

Japan should make people like this one to pay a huge find before sending them to jail. A man in the library, another in a park etc lots of pervs and losers men here.
