The television affiliates TBS and MBS report that an editorial staff member of Shogakukan's Big Comic Spirits magazine was arrested for indecent acts with a high school girl at Tokyo's Roppongi Hills complex late this month. The 40-year-old suspect Junichirō Tanaka is accused of embracing the alleged victim from the back, touching her chest, and other acts. Tanaka was reportedly identified after a witness sketch was produced and an analysis of surveillance footage. Shogakukan said that it is treating the arrest seriously and that it is dealing with the employee severely.
