TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested a 27-year-old male employee at a Chinese massage parlor in Kita Ward over the alleged molestation of a female customer, reports TBS News (Oct. 11).
On October 5, the suspect, a Chinese national, allegedly fondled the lower body of a woman, aged in her 20s, while providing a massage to her at the parlor, located near JR Jujo Station.
The suspect, who has been accused of quasi-indecent assault, denies the allegations. “I might have made contract with my hand, but I didn’t intend to touch,” the suspect was quoted by police in denying the allegations.
