TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Friday announced the bust of an SM club in Sumida Ward for employing a third-year high-school girl, reports the Sankei Shimbun (Feb. 28).
Officers took Fumitaka Yasukawa, the 46-year-old manager of club Panther Claw, and former employee Masaki Aoshima, 34, into custody for dispatching the 17-year-old girl to hotel rooms to supply illicit services to male customers between June and August of last year.
The girl, who charged customers between 25,000 and 120,000 yen per session, was recruited by a scout outside JR Kinshicho Station. She then mislead management at Panther Claw by saying that she was 18 years old.
“We did not confirm her age,” Yasukawa told police in admitting to the allegations.
The average monthly salary of the 17-year-old was 200,000 yen.
