The Busan police requested an arrest warrant Wednesday for a 29-year-old man, only identified by his surname Kim, who was accused of raping a female student at a school library in the nation’s second-largest city on Wednesday, according to news reports.
Kim, who introduced himself as a researcher, lured the woman into the library through online chatting. He then forced her into a women’s shower room, located in the corner of the library, where he raped her, according to the reports.
It is believed that there are no witnesses as the incident occurred in an out-of-the-way place out of eyeshot of library users.
Police caught the man at the back gate of the university, six minutes after the victim reported the case to the police by public phone.
The two involved in the case are not known to be affiliated with the university.
