Male doctor accused in second sexual assault case

TOKYO (TR) – A male doctor in custody over the alleged molestation of a woman after he viewed an adult video (AV) production has been accused in a second sexual assault case, reports Sankei Sports (Oct. 15).

At around 11:00 p.m. on May 27, Li Hongyu, a Chinese national, allegedly came up from behind the woman, aged in her 20s, at the entrance of her apartment in Arakawa Ward and fondled her chest.

Li, who has been accused of indecent assault, admits to the allegations, police said.

Police had previously accused Li of fondling the body of another woman, a company employee aged in her 30s, from behind at the entrance of her residence in Toshima Ward as she returned home early on August 14.

“While drinking alcohol at my residence I watched an AV flick,” police quoted the suspect upon his arrest in September. “Afterward, I went out wandering, saw the woman, and fondled her chest.”
