tokyoreporter.com -- Dec 02
Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested a 57-year-old man who is suspected of injecting a teenage girl with stimulant drugs while having sex with her, reports Fuji News Network

In July, Takemitsu Takahashi, a company employee, took the girl, then 17, to a hotel in the capital and allegedly injected her with kakuseizai, or stimulant drugs, while fondling her body.

The suspect later brought her to his residence in Edogawa Ward. Over the next four days, he is alleged to have repeated the same acts.

Police allege that Takahashi knew that the girl was minor. Upon his arrest, Takahashi admitted to the allegations, police said.

According to police, Takahashi got to know the girl through Twitter. After one session at his residence, the suspect left to go to work, leaving the girl alone.

After some period, she sought help from a neighbor when she began experiencing the effects of the drugs.

東京・江戸川区の自宅などで当時17歳の少女に覚醒剤を使用させたうえでみだらな行為をしたとして、会社員の57歳の男が逮捕されました。  高橋猛満容疑者は7月、江戸川区の自宅や都内のホテルなどで当時17歳の少女に覚醒剤を使用させたうえ、少女が18歳未満と知りながらみだらな行為をした疑いが持たれています。警視庁によりますと、高橋容疑者は少女とツイッターを通じて知り合い、東京都内で待ち合わせてホテルに連れて行きました。部屋の中で少女に覚醒剤の注射を打って体を触るなどした後、さらに自宅に連れ込んで4日間にわたって同様の行為を繰り返したということです。取り調べに対し、「覚醒剤を打ったことに間違いありません」などと容疑を認めています。
