On August 12, 2017, pictures appeared online showing Duan putting his hands inside a girl's dress and on her breast in a crowded waiting room at Nanjing South Railway Station. This sparked outrage, as the girl, who a witness has described as between 10 and 12 years old, showed no signs of struggle, reportedly referring to Duan as "brother."
On August 15, Nanjing railway police announced the arrest of Duan, and confirmed the girl is his foster-sister, who is - in fact - under 14 years old.
Under the law, Duan could face a minimum of five years in prison.
