On Tuesday, officers from the juvenile division of the prefectural police took Shun Ikeda, 24, into custody for violating child prostitution and pornography laws.
According to Osaka police, the number of victims with whom Ikeda had a sexual encounter exceeds 10, while approximately 35 girls were photographed naked, according to the Mainichi Broadcasting System (Apr. 30).
The suspect uploaded the images of the girls to the Internet and made them available for sale. Officers are now seeking to also apply charges for violating a Tokyo ordinance regarding the healthy upbringing of young people.
Ikeda became acquainted with the girls through a deai-kei matchmaking site. A raid of the suspect’s Setagaya home revealed a number of maid outfits and school-girl uniforms.
