Police said Wednesday night that they have arrested a 53-year-old man over the attempted kidnapping of a 14-year-old girl on a lonely road in Ichihara, Chiba Prefecture, on Tuesday morning.
According to police, the girl was riding her bike to school at around 7:30 a.m. when a car pulled up beside her on the narrow road. The girl told police the driver asked her what grade she was in. Then he got out of his car, grabbed her and forced her into the back seat of his car where he proceeded to bind her hands and feet, TBS reported.
However, another car came from the opposite direction and its driver honked the horn to tell the suspect to move his car which was blocking the way. At that point, the girl freed herself and jumped out of the car, which took off.
Police said that fingerprints left on some of the girl's belongings led them to the suspect. They also confiscated the man's car, a silver minivan.© Japan Today
