Tokyo man arrested for alleged rape 3 years ago

6 Comments

Police have arrested a 26-year-old man on suspicion of raping a girl three years ago.

Fumiki Takahashi, an unemployed man from Tokyo’s Koto Ward, is accused of breaking into the apartment of a then-17-year-old girl in the middle of the night on Sept 7, 2014, raping her and hitting her in the face, Sankei Shimbun reported. Following the crime, Takahashi fled the scene, but left DNA traces behind. Police had been since looking for the perpetrator, but to no avail.

A breakthrough came in June when Takahashi was arrested on a separate robbery charge and his DNA matched that of a sample collected from the woman’s apartment.

Takahashi has reportedly told police he has no recollection of the rape.

Hit and Run drives say the same thing, after they are arrested, seems the norm here. Anyway if Takahashi is found guilty of rape, then jail him until the day he dies, time to start removing these parasites off the streets, personally I think rapists should be executed.

DNA evidence - as long as the evidence has not been tampered with this guy needs to go to jail and stay there forever. Raping 17 year olds, wtf.
