An elementary school teacher was arrested on a charge of child pornography after allegedly taking photos of naked boys over a seven year period, police in Japan said.
Tokyo police said that they have arrested 38-year-old Masamichi Kumazawa, after being accused of running a children’s club in his home, where he took photos of naked boys.
According to the police investigation, Kumazawa formed the children’s club in order to be able to lure students to his home.
The club was only open to boys under 12 years old. While the children were at his home, he forced the boys to undress and took photos of them.
Police believe that there were at least ten victims. During questioning, Kumazawa admitted to the allegations, saying that he gets excited by looking at photos of naked boys.
He also told police that he was the only one looking at the photos and he has not shared them with anyone.
