A 46-year-old teacher at an elementary school in Tokyo was arrested for possessing obscene images of female children.


The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the teacher's suspicion that he had been taking hidden pictures in the classroom for some time.

The person arrested was Ken Kawashima (46), an elementary school teacher in Koto Ward, Tokyo.


According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department, there is a suspicion of violating the Child Pornography Prohibition Law, alleging that they possessed images showing girls changing their clothes.



A child at an elementary school where the teacher works complained that he was "touched", and when the Metropolitan Police Department, which was consulted by the school, searched the teacher's home, a smartphone containing images and videos of the child was found. That is.


It seems that it was taken secretly in the classroom a few years ago, and there was also an image of another child, so the Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the details.



According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department, he said to the investigation, "I will talk after the lawyer comes."
