16 Comments

Police in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, have arrested a 33-year-old man on suspicion of public indecency after he exposed his body to a 14-year-old girl.

The incident occurred in a residential area at around 4:25 p.m. on Feb 1, Sankei Shimbun reported. According to police, Tetsuro Kawashima, a company employee, parked his car on a street, then opened the door and undid his pants as the junior high school student was walking by on her way home. The girl told her parents who contacted police.

Police said Kawashima’s car was identified after an analysis of street surveillance camera footage. Following his arrest on Tuesday, Kawashima has denied the charge, police said.

Police said there have been similar reports of a man exposing himself in the neighboring area and are questioning Kawashima about those incidents.

Schools and parents should teach the young girls to not run and scream, but to point and laugh at the loser’s tallywhackers.

Take their video or pictures post and hashtag it with the town’s/city’s name it takes place in on social media.

As well as license plate numbers if they can. Put scum like that on blast. Hopefully their places of employment will see them and dispose of them.

Please no one listens to this "advice"! We are already obviously dealing with a man that has issues, one does not know how he will react and this could result in the girl being physically attacked, he could run her down with his car in a rage or do something else.

Take their video or pictures post and hashtag it with the town’s/city’s name it takes place in on social media.

Take a picture if they can and run home or the nearest safe place and get help.

Posting on line may get him identified but is also a violation of the law in Japan, so it has the potential to backfire.

Just let the police do their job.

Many such crimes used to happen near train stations so these pervy perps could easily escape. What’s alarming are these recent cases in populated areas to do a drive-by-and-assault, and/or possibly with intent at abduction. No one is claiming either type of crime is acceptable nor demonstrating any kind of logic or intelligence.

The law can at times be so so stupid. Perverts like kawashima don't have any rights and revealing their

identity or picture in public will act as a deterrent to other perverts.

It irks me when the media reports about a crime and blurs out the criminals number plate when it is 100 percent he committed the crime. There are things that don't merit any secrecy but are withheld on the grounds

of privacy like revealing the class that had a pupil with a positive corona case or saying they are going to show a TV personality's house and show only the corridor or part of the living room or kitchen. If they are so concerned about privacy then they had better not report or show anything.

I find it telling that in the comments section of every article about sexual misconduct, assault, and even rape, the up/down votes, and sometimes even the comments themselves, seem to take the side of the perpetrators.

That's some sad stuff.

Missed two equally “off topic” @3:01pm and @5:04pm Moderator and now out of context. Was just answering the questions posed to me on this Discussion Board. - As always, Thank You for your fairness in Moderation. - Regards

I am not sure that would work. I suspect the perverts would still get a kick out it.

Take their video or pictures post and hashtag it with the town’s/city’s name it takes place in on social media.

Now that would work. I am surprised that, with the typical high schooler being glued to their smartphone, it has not happened already.

There is a difference in stripping for pervert desire and stripping to get PAID for in a club!
