On Jan. 12 in Osaka, a grade schooler and a friend were playing video games outside. It was 5:30 and getting dark when a middle-aged male approached. Man, he seemed pissed.

"Why you own a PSP?" he said to the grade schooler, grabbing the child by both shoulders.

The man, dressed in a navy boy jacket, rode away on his bicycle.

A police alert was sent out via email, and if you happen to see a surly middle-aged man in a navy blue jacket riding a bicycle, do two things: First, alert the authorities; second, hide your PSP.
