A man who brazenly assaulted a schoolgirl on one of the capital’s packed trains using a sextoy has been arrested.
The chikan, a 33-year-old man in charge of local sports facilities for youths, struck on Tokyo’s Yurakucho line one morning.
Approaching a high school girl, he began to assault her with an unspecified sex toy he had previously concealed in his trouser pocket, pressing it up against her skirt.
Fortunately, there happened to be a police officer nearby who noticed the crime, and subdued the perpetrator.
The chikan was charged under Tokyo’s anti-chikan ordinances, though oddly seems to have escaped charges of sexual assault. The municipal government which employs him also vowed to deal with him strictly.
Shocking as it may be, we have to wonder at the mentality of a girl who would not offer substantial resistance to this kind of ridiculous assault…
