Saitama prosecutors decided Tuesday not to indict four firefighters who were arrested last month on suspicion of raping an intoxicated teenager in Saitama City last November.
No reason was given for the decision not to proceed with the indictment, Sankei Shimbun reported.
The suspects were arrested on suspicion of gang-raping the girl in her late teens in a karaoke booth in Saitama City before dawn on Nov 2, 2019. The underage victim had passed out after drinking alcohol at the time of the sexual assault, police said.
The four suspects and the victim did not know each other. They invited the teenager, who was with a group of friends, to join them in their booth.© Japan Today
