A man was arrested on charges of sexual assault after allegedly assaulting young girls as they were tying his shoes, police in Japan said.
Kanagawa Police said that they have arrested 43-year-old Masato Tamakori, who faked a disability in order to touch the private parts of teenagers.
According to the police investigation, Tamakori is accused of touching a 13-year-old girl in the stairwell of an apartment building in Fujisawa.
Tamakori, who has been charged with sexual assault, has denied the allegations. The suspect met the girl in the street and he told her that due a disability, he cannot tie his shoes.
He asked the girl for her help. The suspect led the girl to a nearby apartment building, and he touched her private parts as she bent over to tie his shoes.
Tamakori used similar methods to sexually assault at least 10 other girls.
Tamakori was caught after police obtained security camera footage, which showed him sexually assaulting the 13-year-old girl.
