A 15-year-old high school girl sustained a light injury on Tuesday night after being attacked by a man using what police believe may have been a stun gun, in Asakura, Fukuoka Prefecture. According to police, the girl was cycling home at around 7:45 p.m. when the man, who was on foot, called out to her to stop. When she did, he pressed the weapon into the right side of the girl's torso and then fled the scene.
According to police, the man was heavily built, around 30 years of age and 160-170 cm in height. The attack took place about 100 meters from the girl's home. Her mother immediately called police.
