Bar employee, 29, accused of raping woman in Hachioji

TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested a 29-year-old male bar employee over the alleged rape of a woman in Hachioji City last month, reports TBS News (Dec. 4).

At around 2:00 a.m. on November 20, Yosuke Kamijo pinned the woman, aged in her 30s, on a road as she commuted home. “Don’t make a sound or I’ll kill you,” he reportedly threatened.

Kamijo then took her to a nearby building and sexually assaulted her.

Kamijo, who has been accused of coerced intercourse, admits to the allegations, police said.
