12 Comments

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.

"he grabbed her breast with one hand and then kept going."

Off with his nads!

Whats the bet ge also knows all the AKB members and can recite all their names. No doubt his phone is full of their pictures and many other young girls as well.

Another Japanese creep with an unhealthy sexual fascination with young girls.

Gotta give him props about his honesty.

but hentai manga portraying graphic scences of sexual assault and violence have no impact on the development of young males' sexual attitudes and predelictions

It doesn't, actually. Just like violence in video games isn't proven to cause violent behavior.

A dangerous sexual offender. If he hadn't been caught his behaviour would have escalated.

hegotgame Hopefully he also gets molested in prison. Hey, Tomoya if you have that much free time at 21 years old, how about you get a job instead?

Never hear of young ladies doing such things... I would be pretty outraged if that was my kid being groped. Hopefully dad is not obsessed with his job and can walk his daughter to school once in a while.

Agree with @dothehustle. If it is once, 3 years with councilling. But 7-8, there needs to be a medical operation.

I thinks its about time japan stopped over sexualising young girls, either in manga or magazines. there is an poor argument that manga has NO influence on young mens minds, well how come its young girls that are portrayed in mags and its young girls that get molested? do young boys get over sexualised in manga mags? and how many cases of young boys do we hear of being sexually assaulted?

he got as far as 8 girls before they caught up to him. had people around him been less trusting and more suspicious, as they are of non-Japanese people, they would've nabbed him a long time ago.
