Police on Tuesday arrested a 57-year-old man for abducting a 9-year-old boy and sexually molesting him in his car in Iruma City, Saitama Prefecture. The victim was released about one hour later, police said.
Yutaka Tajima, 57, was arrested for allegedly abducting the victim who was playing at a park with his friends around 9:45 a.m. Police said Tajima talked the boy into going with him. Tajima drove off and allegedly assaulted the boy in his car for about hour, before returning him to the same park.
Tajima was arrested later in the day after the boy's friends told police the registration number of his car. Tajima was quoted by police as saying, “I love boys because adult women don't care for me at all. I couldn't control my sexual urges.”
Police say Tajima had been arrested once before for sexually molesting boys. He was released from jail last October.© Japan Today
