'Mayonnaise Man' believed to have returned to his uniform-ruining ways in Hokkaido

On the morning of Oct 11 in Ebetsu City, Hokkaido, a young woman on her way to high school and dressed in a uniform was approached by a 39-year-old man. The man then suddenly spit salad dressing onto the girl’s outfit, soiling it.

The victim reported her assault to the police who were able to eventually track down and arrest the suspect, partly thanks to the DNA evidence present in the spatter of dressing. The man is said to have admitted to the crime, telling them, “I thought I would find a high school girl and dirty her uniform before going in to work.”

Although this has not been confirmed, the suspect in custody shares the name “Tsuyoshi Furusawa” with that of the notorious Mayonnaise Man, a then-32-year-old Sapporo man who terrorized school girls by splattering them with mayo in 12 different reported incidents in 2012.

Considering both incidents happened in neighboring Hokkaido cities, both perps have the same name and age, and gave the same motive of simply wanting to make uniforms dirty, it seems an awful lot like Mayonnaise Man has returned to his wicked ways, just with dressing this time.

Netizens were quick to assume the same, and feel that rehabilitation is no longer an option for this fiend.

“Two strikes are enough for this guy. Throw the book at him. That’s disgusting.”

“Since this is his second offense, the courts will probably go harder on him.

“I wonder if he’ll switch to salt next time.”

“Going from Mayonnaise Man to Dressing Man seems like a step down.”

“Sure you can clean it, but I’d never want to wear that uniform again.”

“Is there a deserted island we can just drop this guy off on somewhere?”

“So he did it like [pro-wrestler] The Great Kabuki?”

“I think it’s time we start using those GPS bands like they have in other countries for these people.”

In the highly likely event that Dressing Man is in fact Mayonnaise Man, this does raise the question of how to deal with such a person. Locking up a guy for years for spitting sauce seems excessive, despite how utterly nasty it is.

There's some really sick people out there

I was once spat on through an open train window, by a skinhead who obviously didn't like my long hair and general appearance. The train was just pulling out of the station at the time, so I was left to clean up this guy's nicotine stinking saliva from my face and clothes. Decades later, I can still remember what it smelled like.

Spitting is a contemptuous act, and it seems that in this case it has a psycho-sexual element to it. I don't know what you do with a guy like this. The girls won't forget it, that's for sure.

Dunk the perp in mayonnaise and put him in a cell for a week-instant cure!

I can’t understand why this article has hint of satire in it. This is a serious assault carried out by severely deranged individual. He needs to spend a lot of time in an asylum.

2nd offense? Sounds like his 13th.

Now are we sure this was salad dressing that was spit onto the school girl clothes ?? With all the weirdos running around in Japan who can say what was spit onto the girls clothes.

That was written about a real-life perp who did exactly what you heard in the song.
