Police in Tokyo's Shinjuku Ward said Saturday they have arrested a 21-year-old university student on suspicion of molesting a 9-year-old girl.
According to police, the suspect, identified as Masaki Hatta, knocked on the door of an apartment late on the afternoon of March 25 and told the girl that he was a neighbor, Fuji TV reported. He said there was a water leak coming from the apartment and asked her to open the door so he could check it out.
Police said Hatta then tied the girl's hands together and molested her. He fled when the girl's older sister returned home. The sister immediately called 110.
Hatta was identified through surveillance camera footage and the girl's description.© Japan Today
