A lolicon stalker has been arrested after following a 9-year-old girl home, breaking into her house, and committing indecent acts upon her.
The man, a 26-year-old unemployed Osaka resident, began following the girl, an elementary schooler, on her way home from school one afternoon.
Once the girl arrived home, where she was alone as her father was still at work, she found she had attracted an unwelcome companion.
He proceeded to proposition the girl, asking her “Let’s play together!”, but in his own words excused himself: “Before I knew what I was doing, I had started doing it to her…”
The girl apparently escaped any more serious indignity than being groped by the stalker.
Incidents such as these, despite their extreme rarity, do not help parents develop a realistic sense of the risks strangers pose to their offspring…
