SAITAMA – A 54-year-old CEO of a facility for people with disabilities has been arrested and charged with hitting a woman who had been admitted to a facility for the disabled in Kuki City, Saitama Prefecture. This was the second time the CEO was arrested after having been once arrested for sexually assaulting the woman at her home in Satte City, Saitama Prefecture in July. The CEO denies some of the accusations.
The person who was re-arrested is aged 54 and the director of Nyawan House, a group home for the disabled in Kuki City.
According to the police, the CEO said that he had taken the woman, who is on her twenties, home under the pretext of taking care of her from around June, saying, “I couldn’t control my feelings. I agree. I thought, “he said, denying some of the charges.
The CEO was arrested and charged last month for hitting the woman in the living room of the facility, and was re-arrested for hitting the face of another female resident, and then charged.
The police are investigating the details.
