A Microsoft employee has been arrested for groping the breasts of a schoolgirl.
The 40-year-old salaryman, an employee of Microsoft’s Kansai banch office, was travelling on the JR Kobe line on a train headed for Osaka.
On the train he allegedly took the opportunity to grope a 16-year-old schoolgirl, fondling her breasts by placing his hands up under her shirt.
The girl pulled him from the train at the next station and handed him over to station staff.
He has been charged with indecent assault by police, charges which he denies:
“I may perhaps have touched her body but I did not touch her breasts.”
