A 21-year-old university student under arrest for groping a junior high school girl as she walked along a street in Tokyo has admitted to his involvement in 7-8 similar cases, police said Tuesday.
According to police, Tomoya Yonemoto rode his bike toward the girl as she walked home in Koto Ward on May 17, Fuji TV reported. He told police he liked her face and turned his bike around. As he went by the girl, he grabbed her breast with one hand and then kept going.
Yonemoto was quoted by police as saying he was interested in junior high school girls and got a thrill out of touching their breasts.
Police said Yonemoto, whose bike was identified by street surveillance camera footage, has also admitted to molesting 7-8 other junior high school girls in similar circumstances since spring 2017.© Japan Today
