A teacher at a Saitama junior high school has been arrested for sexually assaulting a woman in her 20s on the street in January, police said Wednesday.
According to police, the man, who has been named as 24-year-old Tatsuya Tamura, was a teacher at Mamiya Junior High School in Saitama when the incident occurred in Midori Ward.
