29 Comments

Police are looking for a man who cut off a 12-year-old girl's hair with scissors as she walked home from school in Tokyo's Chiyoda Ward.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday as the girl was walking along a narrow road near Yasukuni shrine, Fuji TV reported. The girl told police she was approached by a man whom she did not know, and that he asked her if she was had any money.

The girl said no and then attempted to run away from the man but he grabbed her by the hair and cut a handful off with a pair of scissors.

The assailant is described as being approximately 155 to 160 cm tall and was wearing a black T-shirt and silver-rimmed sunglasses.

Police said they are analyzing street surveillance camera footage and have stepped up patrols in the area.

He will get caught pretty soon if its near Yasukuni cos of all the CCTV. the next report will be "a unemployed man in his 30s was quote as saying she was just so cute & wanted to get to know her/ i was drunk and dont remember.

Glad she is safe, people with daughters teach them stranger danger and judo.

@ozellis: Ala the shocking discovery that there are many child porn manga fans on this website: http://www.japantoday.com/category/crime/view/revised-law-banning-child-porn-possession-goes-into-effect

Well I don't know, but if I was a girl I'd rather prefer losing my underwear, wouldn't you? At least you can buy new panties everywhere whereas growing your hair will take months, if not years, so she'll be remembered of this accident for a long time. It's a much worse humiliation in my opinion. I sincerely hope they catch this weirdo soon.

Besides, if he was an "unemployed man in his 30s" or not, what difference does this make? I really can't stand these prejudices. Some guys here really seem to believe that every unemployed man is a potential killer/rapist/child molester. Wait until you lose your job and get forced to live with your parents again (another prejudice -- this happens everywhere and even in the best families) and then judge again. May be that many criminals use to be "unemployed men in their 30s", but given the large number of them it's still a minority.

He only cut a handful, easily fixed with a visit to the hairdresser and it will grow back. More trauma in losing her panties and that takes longer to heal.

She reacted correctly in that situation.

So far no detail s about him.

Cutting hair, throwing urine, stealing underwear - the 1-step-from-sexual weirdness gene seems to be getting out of hand.

I suspect that gogogo is a bit peeved about the recent story about exempting manga from child pornography laws recently and how others took gogogo's views on the subject.

First thing comes into my mind is hair + doll + nail + tree = curse? I watched too many horror movies.

The story here is a man cutting all of a little girl's hair! HAIR! Not comics!

From Article above.

The girl said no and then attempted to run away from the man but he grabbed her by the hair and cut a handful off with a pair of scissors

I'm getting at the sexual pervertness from both story. Where does cutting a 12 years hair come from? Think about it.

Yes you can disagree with me, but child porn, manga or not should be illegal.

0 ( +3 / -3 )

It seems to be missed by many of you - he was carrying scissors! Scissors can stab, too, you know! Get your priorities straight and forget the frivolous arguments about hair and panties - the guy was carrying a potentially lethal weapon.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Scissors can cut stab, slice and more depending on scissor size and type. but why should we discuss an action that didn't happen?

We are discussing what's in the article and not what actions didn't happen.

This story doesn't make any sense. I thnk she is being bullied. Maybe her classmates cut her hair... and she doesn't want to implicate them for fear of retaliation.

That is just an assessment.

@Tahoochi Agreed.

@gogogo

I don't believe anyone is arguing that the cutting of hair is perverse. What we are getting at is that you have tried to bring a different, unrelated argument into this debate.

Yes you can disagree with me, but child porn, manga or not should be illegal.

Whatever my views might be, I shall not argue the toss here. My last comment in this thread pointed people back to the correct forum. I suggest that you use it.

Kudos @Farmboy. Jeez. . . When? Just when are these whacked-out japanese guys gona' realize . . . They do not need to do this sort of "sexual weirdness". It's not rocket science to go out & properly meet a nice woman (foreign or homegrown) and establish a natural foundation from there. No wonder- population in decline.

The creep could have stabbed or cut her with those scissors!

Posters like gogogo are trying to, as mistie710 pointed out, equate attacks on kids to pedophilia.

Not all attackers are pedophiles!

Too many nuts in the mix, just like N.Y.C. where random crime is rampant! thank heavens she escaped but where are the patrolmen?

Just cos its legal doesnt make it right!

@gogogo. You're bringing another issue into this story. The man appears to have mental issues but we shouldn't use pre-conceived prejudices to say that his motives were sexual. Of course it might be related to sex but the story doesn't mention it. If it were sexual, I would have thought that he would have done something far worse. After all , he engaged her and the attack was brazen.

Demanding money from a twelve-yr-old? This guy on some designer hallucinatory/deliriant drugs? That would explain his subsequent action.
