Prosecutors in Tokyo have dropped their indictment against a 38-year-old man who was arrested in June on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman in her 20s in a hotel.
The man met the woman, who was apparently intoxicated and could hardly stand up, outside the west exit of JR Ikebukuro Station in the early hours of June 28. He took her in a taxi to a nearby hotel where he allegedly sexually assaulted her.
Afterwards, the woman filed a criminal complaint and the man was arrested.
However, on Wednesday, prosecutors said the charge had been dropped, TV Asahi reported. As is customary, prosecutors gave no reason why they decided not to proceed with the case.© Japan Today
