English language school owner suspected of sexually assaulting students


According to a report in the Mainichi Daily News today: 'A 69-year-old American operating an English language school in Fukuoka is being investigated on suspicion of sexually assaulting pupils. Over 600 video tapes seized from the man's home have raised suspicions that several dozen people were sexually violated, and Fukuoka Prefectural Police are investigating whether the 69-year-old was involved.'

'Sources close to the investigation said that analysis of the video tapes caused investigators to suspect that the man had been sexually assaulting students and other victims and subjecting them to obscene behavior from over a decade ago. The victims were believed to be mainly elementary school students.'
