A 42-year-old male police officer in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, voluntarily resigned after he flashed a woman in her 40s while he was questioning her during an investigation at her apartment, police said Wednesday.
According to police, the officer started making sexually suggestive remarks to the woman while he was questioning her about a case on Oct 16. The woman refused his advances. Her mother spotted the incident and reported the officer to police.
The officer was suspended for three months but voluntarily quit on Wednesday, according to police officials.
A police spokesperson said the officer cannot be accused of public lewdness because he was inside the woman's apartment legally. The officer was quoted as saying, “I got excited when I saw lingerie inside the apartment.”© Japan Today
