A teacher stands accused of indecent assault after he dropped his trousers in front of a schoolgirl and asked her to rub his nether regions.
He denies the charges, explaining that he was just asking her for a massage.
The Miyazaki prefecture teacher (39) was apparently unfortunate enough to be run into by a 16-year-old schoolgirl cycling home from her part time job.
He fell, and soon complained to the girl of pain in his leg. He bade her accompany him to a nearby car park, where he removed his trousers and underwear, and asked her “Won’t you rub it?”
The girl seems to have complied to an uncertain extent, and returned home without incident. Explaining what had happened to her mother, they reported the incident to police.
Arrested on these charges, the teacher protests: “I just had her massage me, it wasn’t obscene…”
At 16 she should possibly have known better than to trust one of the nation’s teachers, or for that matter a random stranger asking her to accompany him to a relatively private spot; we can but wonder at what ruse he used…
