KANAGAWA (TR) – Kanagawa Prefectural Police have arrested a emergency personnel member over the alleged molestation of a woman in Yokohama City, reports TV Asahi (Aug. 31).
On Thursday, Akihito Kose, 21, allegedly grabbed the woman, 21, from behind at a ticket gate at Koganecho Station in Minato Ward. He then fondled her buttocks.
The woman was not hurt in the incident, police said.
“Since I was under the influence of alcohol, I do not know if I did it,” Kose told the Minami Police Station in denying the allegations.
After the incident, Kose fled the scene. However, he became a person of interest after an examination of security camera footage taken at the station.
