A 21-year-old guy was arrested in Moriyama, Shiga Prefecture, on suspicion of sexually abusing a 21-year-old female college student in his car.
According to authorities, the event occurred in a downtown area of Kusatsu City in the early hours of October 28, according to the Sankei Shimbun.
Naohide Maeda, a college student, is accused of approaching the woman while she was walking down the street. The woman informed police that when she resisted Maeda’s attempts, he grabbed her arm and dragged her into his adjacent miniwagon.
According to police, the victim told them that Maeda then grabbed her lower body before letting her go.
Police said that Maeda, who was arrested on Monday, has denied the charge and quoted him as saying the woman consented to what they did. The two reportedly did not know one another.
