Toyama police on Friday arrested a 25-year-old man and his 48-year-old mother in Yamagata Prefecture for allegedly abducting a 13-year-old girl in Toyama Prefecture and keeping her at their home for days.

It is a case reminiscent of the recent arrest of a Chiba University graduate over the alleged kidnapping and two-year confinement of a 13-year-old Saitama girl.
