Police in Tokyo have arrested a 35-year-old man on suspicion of rape and robbery just 11 days after he was released from prison for serving time for a similar offense.
According to police, Junichi Komori, of no fixed address or occupation, lured a third-year junior high school girl to a hotel in Taito Ward on Dec 29 after exchanging messages with her on Twitter and promising to pay her 50,000 yen if she modeled underwear, Sankei Shimbun reported.
Police said that after taking the girl to a hotel room, he bound her wrists and legs, and told her to keep quiet or he would kill her. He then sexually assaulted her, and stole 51,000 yen money from her bag.
Police said Komori, who was released from prison on Dec 18, has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying he had “done it to other girls as well.”© Japan Today
