A man has been arrested for somehow persuading a schoolgirl passing by his house to have sex with him for the princely sum of ¥1,000.
The 60-year-old resident of Ibaraki prefecture was found to have paid ¥1,000 to a 14-year-old middle school girl for sex.
His modus operandi has been described by the press as “nanpa” – he explains that “I just kept calling out to the same girl who kept passing by my house,” eventually resulting in a cut-price encounter it would seem.
Police have charged him with knowingly committing indecent acts with a minor, charges which he admits. Police are said to be investigating additional charges.
Just why the schoolgirl agreed to a price less than even the going rate in schools is not clear.
