A young girl commuting to school on a train for almost an hour in the peak hour rush in Tokyo this morning has miraculously evaded harassment.

The innocent girl had braced herself for another day of possible trauma from a dirty old man but escaped from the train unscathed.

“This morning was a good morning although there was some guy casually reading an erotic manga about 50 centimetres from my face,” the girl said.

“Fortunately, there were five people in between me and that guy.”

Witnesses say the man showed no signs of discretion.
