Two 21-year-old Kagoshima Prefecture riot police have been arrested for allegedly sexually molesting a 16-year-old employee at an izakaya (Japanese pub) last Friday night, Fukuoka police officials said Monday.
According to NTV, the two men pushed the employee back into the women's restroom as she was coming out at about 7 p.m. They then allegedly groped her breasts. The two men were in the Fukuoka area for training, NTV reported.
Police were quoted as saying that the victim worked part time at the pub in the city's Hakata Ward, while attending a technical college in the area.
The pub where the incident occurred had two single-occupant restrooms. The employee was able to escape from the men about five minutes into the attack and alerted her boss, NTV reported.
The men have reportedly confessed to the allegations. They were quoted as saying they had been drinking heavily with five colleagues and that their assault on the woman was done on the spur of the moment.© Japan Today
