A 30-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly kidnapping a 16-year-old girl from Ibaraki Prefecture after luring her to Nagasaki City. The suspect, Kodai Uto, manages an adult entertainment shop in Nagasaki.
According to police, on April 24, Uto messaged the girl on a social networking service (SNS) and lured her to Nagasaki by claiming she could earn money by giving aroma massages, Sankei Shimbun reported. Uto came to Ibaraki and took the girl by car and plane from Ibaraki to his hometown in Kyushu.
The teenager immediately contacted her mother after she was forced to provide “sexual services” to clients at Uto’s adult entertainment shop. Police said she was not harmed. Uto was charged with kidnapping since the girl is a minor.
Police said Uto has admitted to the charge and are investigating to see if he lured other girls to work for him under similar circumstances.© Japan Today
