Man Charged with Assault for Picking Up Little Girl


A man has been arrested after he brutally assaulted a 10-year-old girl by patting her on the head and picking her up.

The man, a 51-year-old mid-ranking police functionary, was visiting the Chiba seaside when he approached a 10-year-old girl playing on the beach one afternoon, accompanied by 6 members of her family in a pleasant mid-winter beach excursion.

He asked the girl what year she was, patted her on the head, and suddenly picked her up from behind.

The girl did not take well to this brutal attack and ran to her mother; her 21-year-old brother reported the man to police for assaulting the child, charges he admits, saying “I was joking around with her.” He was arrested at the scene.

The girl was unharmed by her ordeal.

The man explained his sick motivations: “I wanted to play with the girl.”

The man’s employers at the police HQ issued a statement: “It is truly regrettable that our employee was arrested. We await the results of the Chiba police investigation, after which we would like to take appropriate action.”

Via Sankei.

Japanese men should by now be getting the message that any man so much as talking to a child in public is likely to find himself the subject of a manhunt, to say nothing of those criminal deviants who go so far as to try to help a lost child. Men experiencing more innocent urges may wish to join the teaching profession.

    Hmm? It seems like the guy was harmless. He just wanted to have some (pure innocent) fun with the kid. /in a non-sexual way/

    But it's NOT HIS KID. Would you have no problem with someone stealing your car and taking it out street racing as long as they return it undamaged when you need to use it and replaced any petrol they used? After all, it was "harmless".

    Dude, if you're going to relate it to anything like that, it would be more like the guy taking your car whilst you're in the passenger seat. It's not like he kidnapped the damn kid, he was playing with her in the appropriate manner, maybe the picking up part was a lil inappropriate for a child he doesn't know, but excuse him for getting in touch with his child loving side. Some guys absolutely hate kids, so why does he get punished? It's a crappy world we live in now where nice people are discouraged to this extremity...

    In that case, I'm a total serial abuser. I mean, not even babies are safe around me. I help one today for a full 2 minutes, bouncing her up and down. She must have been traumatized by the experience. I can never forgive myself....

    The heavy sarcasm in this article and the "WTF?" responses in this comment field appear to be completely ignorant of the fact that it's NOT RIGHT for strange old men to suddenly grab little girls from behind. If he was a member of her family, like her grandfather, I'd consider this a ridiculous overreation, but he was a complete stranger. To be honest, it's probably 50-50 odds that he WAS a pedophile just wanting to touch little girls.

    lesson to all of you out there
    If you see a little child, no matter what condition he/she is in, don't make any contact, you'll end up badly.

    patting her on the head is fine, though picking her up - if it was my kid I wouldn't want some stranger picking her up from behind, her family was there

    And the final word on why the Japanese are going extinct. In less than 15 years there will be a few exhibits at natural zoos around the world of the Japanese to see but they will all be males on display with no females of full bloodline left. Extinct in this century.

    When I was ten years old (40+ years ago), where I lived, it was implicit that adults in our neighborhood (U.S.A., out in the country 2.5 miles from the nearest town, a cluster of 22 houses) could spank anyone's kid if that kid were doing something wrong.

    They'd have a chat with the kid's parents, afterwards ("This is what happened, and this is what I did ...").

    There was a great deal of trust in that community; many people didn't lock their house doors.

    But, if 10-years-old (5th-grade) me got grabbed by some adult I _didn't _know, I'd freak the hell out, I'd be kicking and screaming as loud as I could, trying to get away.

    And, if I did get away, I'd run to the nearest house, and tell an adult there.

    That adult would make a quick phone call, and the "grabber" would quickly be surrounded by adults armed with shotguns, rifles, and random farm implements.

    That "grabber" had damned well better have had a GOOD explanation of what he was doing. "I just wanted to play with the kid" wouldn't cut it.

    Call the cops? This was all pre-"911 centralized dispatch". The city cops didn't cover our area; the quickest the county or state police would get there would be 45 minutes, if it was a murder-in-progress. Anything less-serious could be hours or maybe the next day.

    I must agree with you. A stranger patting the head of a 10 year old is fine. But picking up the 10 year old? That's suspicious! Nobody should ever pick up a kid they do not know, and no kid will allow a complete stranger pick him up unless coerced.

    Though calling this 'patting and pick up' 'brutal' is a bit of an overreaction.

    If he had permission from the family to do so its fine, but if its a cop and just went up to you and pick you up from behind. I don't think you like it too much.

    That's already happening.

    "Thought crimes"

    They think you might someday commit a real crime against a child, so they make up laws to throw you in prison before you can.

    Most of the concern over making drawings illegal fall into this category.

    In this case, they assume he's a pedophile, so want to throw him in jail and brand him for life as a priest.

    While he was stupid to pick up a child he didn't know, his only crime was being stupid in front of stupid people.

    That guy is a complete monster. How could anyone do such a terrible thing to a child? She'll be scarred for the rest of her life, and her nightmares will surely drive her to suicide.

    This isn't just a thing that would only happen in Japan. A strange man picking up someones child is generally not a socially acceptable action.

    And considering how the media breeds its fair share of paranoia daily to the masses, people are more scared than ever over this type of situation. It's a shame that we as a society have brought ourselves down to this level of untrustfulness because there still is some genuinely kind people out there who wouldn't hurt a fly.

    But alas, this is NOT a perfect world.

    His intentions may have been innocent, but picking her up rightfully aroused suspicion. If a stranger plucked one of my young relatives or children of friends, I don't think I'd wait for the stranger to put the child back down lest he or she make a break for it.

    i feel sorry for the poor old man that got arrested for picking a little girl up. I bet he was just being grandfatherly. I can't even imagine a pedophile being stupid enough to commit a crime in front of people. More likely the family saw an opportunity to try to sue the government for some money. Fuckheads.

    Sorry but that is just creepy, I would freak out if I was around 10 and some old man picked me up from behind, who picks up someone's child they didn't know? For all we know he might have had ill intentions. But calling the police is a bit much, could have just told him to go away.

    Just stay far away from anyTHING

    If we apply the whole pedophile logic to normal men, it means that if a man approaches a woman of whatever reason, he wants to rape her, period. Which is obviously a fail logic but people can't seem to comprehend that. Of course the same applies to man-man encounter, the man who approaches is obviously gay and wants to rape the other guy. And, wtf, no one should ride a horse, cause we all know they're into animals and will rape the horse the first chance they get. Plus, we all know the real reason those people at Animal Planet and NatGeo are filming animals, don't we?

    Just don't tell them that most pedophiles out there (like most normal guys that won't be raping women left and right) will never commit any crime against kids, or we're all going to jail just to be on the same side.

    There's nothing wrong with a pat on the head. Picking up a child is another story.

    I can understand this, actually.
    A pat on the head, alright, no problem.
    But if you just pick up a kid that's not yours without warning, the kid and the kid's parents if they're around are gonna flip the fuck out.

    I mean, imagine you're a 10 year old, and some middle aged man just suddenly PICKS YOU UP. What the fuck, man?

    He didn't suddenly run up to her and pick her up from behind - I think the distinction is that by talking to her and patting her on the head the pair were "playing" together and hence the situation is rather different.

    I suppose it ultimately depends on the atmosphere and details at the beach, which we do not hear.

    No they won't in fact they will give you a pat in the back if you go to the next level of actually shag your pussy. PETA loves animals and that means they fuck them too.

    Even if your intentions are good, you can't just go around playing with other people's kids these days unless they know you. It just invites misunderstandings and whatnot. This guy was pretty stupid to do this in the first place imo, even if it was harmless.

    Poor guy, he couldn't even enjoy playing with a loli.
    But that doesn't mean he is a pedo or that he wanted to reap her or something.
    Can't someone just like little cute girls ? What's wrong to like children ? Not everyone who likes lolis is a pedo...

    If they fear so much why they even go out...the whole family should turn into hikikomoris then they won't have such problems to interact with others. Such retards are only disgusting :(

    If loli nagato (like in the picture) robots would exist there wouldn't be such "problems".

    "Pedophile!" has become the new "Witch!"

    I'm not saying this to 'defend' it, but rather to highlight what I think is it's sociological niche...

    The "Witch Hunt" is what a society uses to create enemies where there were none before so their controllers can pretend they rule effectively, when even the "The guys over the hill -evil/terrorists- are attacking us!" doesn't work anymore. It was used frequently through the Dark Ages in Europe as plagues and periodic famines swept through the area.

    So there's both a heightened sense of fear and then overreaction by the local police.

    And this is absurd. The guy was just trying to be kind to others.

    What really got the "Witch Hunts" running in the middle ages was when the rye rotted or the water got the same rot in it. Natural LSD (ergot) and with them all living in a fantasy world (their fake religion) placing a far more cruel "Otherworld" module over their already cruel, brutal world, when the ground started buckling beneath their feet they saw all kinds of monsters and conspiracies everywhere.

    Yeah, you are right.... before pedosexuals it was homosexuals. Before that it was black men marrying white women. Before that it was heterosexuals period outside of marriage.

    It's time to realize that this is sheer STUPIDITY, and it's VERY apparent that nature expects us to be having sex from BIRTH since we are BORN WITH GENITALS, therefore there is nothing wrong with an adult having sex with a child.

    Now, an adult FORCING a child into sex? That is different.

    Should they have waited until he ran off with her before they called the police? Seriously, who picks up a child at random like that? While he may have had the most innocent of intentions, the parents are well within their rights to be protective of their child.

    Except he let her go so that she can go complain to her mom...

    I don't think he would've let her run back to her mom if he wanted to kidnap her.
