Recently, a shocking series of photos hit Chinese social media, leaving Chinese netizens dismayed and disgusted. The photos appear to show an older guy groping a young girl’s chest while she sits on his lap inside a train station waiting room.
Earlier today, the Nanjing Railway Police confirmed to The Paper that the photos were taken inside the Nanjing South Railway Station, stating that the man in the images had already been arrested. Police added that the man is around 20 years old, while the girl is less than 14.
Though police said that they had established the girl’s relationship to the man, they refused to release any further information about the case in the interest of protecting the identity of a minor. Of course, that hasn’t stopped netizens from speculating or human flesh searching online, and rumors are currently running wild on the Chinese internet. Meanwhile, others have wondered how the girl’s parents or bystanders could allow this to go on.
Nanjing police have simply said that they will deal with the suspect sternly in accordance with the law.
