Charges of public indecency were filed Tuesday against 10 first-year Keio University students after the group was caught filming themselves streaking through Hiyoshi Station on the Tokyu Toyoko Line in Yokohama last month.
According to police, nine male students streaked naked through the ticket gates to a nearby restroom while one female student video taped the run during the early morning hours of Sept 20. The trains had not yet begun running and there were few passengers in the station at the time, but a passerby witnessed the incident. There were no station employees near the ticket gates at the time.
The 10 students were reportedly members of the Keio advertising club and had been drinking at a student's home nearby when the group decided to "make some memories of their first summer at university," according to one. The male students not only streaked through the station, but reportedly walked around the area in paper underwear. A witness to the incident notified police.
Keio University on Tuesday apologized for the students' behavior and said it would punish them accordingly.© Wire reports
