Newspaper deliveryman is nabbed for indecent assault

Date Posted: 2012-01-19

A 62-year-old newspaper deliveryman is under arrest, charged with indecent assault for hugging a young elementary school age girl.

Tomokatsu Yohena, who works for the Ryukyu Shinpo newspaper, has admitted to Naha City Police he approached the girl and forcibly hugged her from behind. He told police he didn’t know the girl, but felt compelled to approach the girl in an apartment building in mid-afternoon, suddenly grabbing her, hugging her and kissing her on the cheek.

The girl, who was not injured, reported the incident to her mother, who contacted the girl’s elementary school, which called cops. Police searched the area and found Yohena based upon the information provided by the girl and her mother. Taken to the police station, Yohena confessed. A spokesman for Ryukyu Shinpo Company issued a statement that “we deeply regret the incident. We will instruct our newspapers operator to give consistent training to our delivery personnel.”
