Some homeless looking guy one night in Shibuya assaulted my daughter like this. He began shouting at her incomprehensibly for no reason and then chased her threw something on her. Needless to say, it was both shocking and disgusting.

What bodily fluid? Poo? Pee? Semen? Saliva? Blood? There is more than one type of body fluid.

Does that matter. Things like this you don't do especially a grow up guy.

Gross. But I do wonder why stories like this makes the national news.

"quoted him as saying he has done the same thing to other girls in the past."

Well it seems they need to build more municipal Jails, like the city of Los Angeles has over 60. The B1s in Tokyo police stations and rooms in kobans are not enough. It time to warehouse these stalkers, pedos, and sex offenders, CLEAN UP YOUR STREETS!

Poor girl. But kudos to her for going straight to the cops. Now what are the chances of this guy getting a harsh sentence, I wonder.

When I tell my friends one of the reasons we are not bringing our girls up in Japan is because there are a lot of sexual deviants they didn't get it. Until they saw this.

Perhaps because this type of sexual crime is so unusual outside of Japan.

wtf?! and by bodily fluid....we aren't talking spit, boogers or blood...are we?! What a sick b###ard!

I happen to think so.

I agree.

What do they call it? The "chikan" smearing man. I can remember so many cases about these "chikan smearing men" in the public; since I've been reading JT since its inception.

Another sicko out there. I'm glad that the girl went to the police right away. Anything to get this loser off the streets. I hope the girl recovers from this.

This filth is utterly disgusting!

Filthy animal has admitted to multiple crimes. - ‘Miggs’ here needs to be evaluated by a forensic psychiatrist before he’s released.

Surely there were other people on the bus, one could have informed the driver what was happening and the diver would have to stop and police would be called

because it is a great break from 24/7 news of Ukraine-Russia

As a foreigner I don’t understand all those strange attacks like this one or sometimes cutting hair or school uniforms, clothes or hurting them and making small wounds and such similar. Can’t they just offer a rose, expensive chocolates or an invitation to a cafeteria or ice cream shop instead? I know , that is also considered very bad nowadays in our new world, but at least it’s still less dangerous or shocking and a much more polite attempt. And who knows, one in a few hundreds might be even working. Don’t be too harsh, just consider if our grandparents or parents wouldn’t have done such attempts, that are now all considered inappropriate or a crime, we all or most of us wouldn’t be existing.

There was some thing similar on the New York subway, a known criminal with similar offences smeared his own faeces on a woman's face, It was a 'misdemeanour' charge, ie, slap on the wrist. The creep had 40 other offences against him, from violent assaults, racial abuse...etc. Yet he is still a free man (creep) with NO bail. American justice.

What country are you bringing them up in? And why are you here if you don't live in Japan.

What is wrong with these weirdos and their need to do this? Nutjobs!

What’s with Japanese men lashing out at women? Especially vile are these perverts with predilections for throwing fluids in public places. Worse are those seeking to harm others in general.

The guy was back on the streets the next day! Totally ridiculous. Let's hope the creep in this story doesn't get let back on the streets for a few years minimum.

Oh well this will not be the last reporting of something like this happening, We will read about something like this again. Japan has a culture of seeing things but not reporting things because they don't want to get involved or cause trouble. Its a cold way to look at things and a cold way of not saying anything.

@Thunderbird2, Nutjobs? A double entendre if I ever heard one.

I don’t know what country you are in, but I guess it depends on your definition of sexual crime. Generally speaking, I don’t think Japan is any worse or better than other developed countries. It might depend on what kind of sexual crime and what kind of sexual crimes get put into the news. In Canada, I doubt something like this would even make the local news. Does that mean Canada has less sexual crimes than Japan? Surely not.

I knew fellow schoolmates even thru HS who'd flick or smear snot boogers on others. Churlish and disgusting to say the least.

And this creepola sez he's done it many times. He needs to be doing time! he's a menace. What does he get out of these repulsive acts? He's a sick boy, maybe doesn't have a GF. Doesn't deserve one either.
