Police in Funabashi, Chiba Prefecture, are looking for a man who lured a 6-year-old boy into a shopping center toilet and molested him before fleeing the scene.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 8 p.m. on Wednesday. NTV reported that the boy was standing outside a toy store while his father went to the toilet. The suspect, who was wearing a white mask, approached the boy and told him he had to put some lotion on him for his health. Police said he took the boy to another restroom, made him take off his top and then pasted some bodily fluid on his stomach.
Police said surveillance camera footage showed the same man talking to a boy at another shopping center earlier the same day.
Police said he left the boy and fled the mall on a scooter. He is described as being in his 20s, and is approximately 160-170 cm tall. Anyone with any information is urged to call 047-435-0110.© Japan Today
