Police in Tokyo have arrested a 20-year-old man on assault charges after he poured urine from a bottle on the leg of a woman in Adachi Ward in August.
According to police, the suspect, Junichi Minezaki, an upholstery worker, approached the 24-year-old woman as she was returning to her home on Aug 2 and poured urine from a plastic bottle onto her right leg, TBS reported Wednesday.
On Tuesday, police publicly posted a photo of the suspect taken from a street surveillance camera. In the afternoon, police received a call from Minezaki saying he was the man in the photo and that he would turn himself in.
On Aug 20, a similar incident occurred in the same area in Adachi Ward, involving a high school girl. Police also said that in April and May of this year, a total of six cases were reported in which a man riding a bicycle flung urine on unsuspecting pedestrians.
Investigators are questioning Minezaki about his involvement in those incidents.© Japan Today
