English teacher’s assistant arrested for alleged sexual assault
Okinawa City Police arrested Tuesday a 46-year-old American English teacher’s assistant from Uruma City on suspicion of a sexual assault.
According to police, the man is suspected of molesting a 41-year-old woman who works at a public junior high school in the middle part of the island. The woman used to work at the same school with the man. He allegedly put his arms around her from behind fondling her breasts in a private residence in Chatan.
The man reportedly told investigators ‘They’ve got it wrong,’ and is denying the charges.
