A Narita Airport cop has been arrested for indecently assaulting two little girls in a public toilet.
The 23-year-old Chiba policeman was part of the force which patrols Narita Airport, having been transfered there from his own force in Kyoto, and evidently spent some of his off duty time in nearby Narita.
On the afternoon of the 15th he approached two elementary school girls playing in one of the city’s parks, aged 8 and 9, and lured them into a nearby public toilet where he proceeded to grope and fondle them.
The girls reported the incident to their mothers, who alerted police and some days later a suspect matching the description was found loitering in the area.
Upon his arrest on charges of indecent assault, the officer confessed, saying “I did it to satisfy my lust.” He also admitted to “having an interest in little girls.”
Police are investigating whether he is behind 2 similar incidents reported in the same area.
The local police chief called the incident “truly regrettable” and promised to take “every possible precaution” to prevent any similar incidents from occurring.
