42-year-old woman arrested a second time for stalking


Police in Chiba have arrested an unemployed 42-year-old woman for the second time in a month on suspicion of stalking the same man.

According to police, Hiromi Nakamura, who lives in Abiko City, was first arrested last month after she stalked a man whom she dated by sending more than 80 messages to his smartphone between Nov 5 and Nov 7, Fuji TV reported. The man, who is in his 20s, filed a complaint with police and Nakamura was arrested but released with a warning to make no further contact with the man and stay away from him.

However, on Monday, Nakamura was arrested again for violating the Stalker Control Law after she showed up at the man's place of work.

Nakamura was quoted by police as saying she just wanted to ask the man why he stopped dating her.

Talk about fatal attraction. Who says this kind of thing only happens to women?

The phone companies get lots of money. As a multi staked individual, the time to delete and block, visit company is frustrating and time consuming. Why men can’t just except no?

She looks younger than her age. Maybe she ran out of money to financially support the young fella.

Just playing mind games and being manipulative by stone walling and not responding. Answer the women and tell her what she wants to know. Simple. No wonder she sent so many messages.

Thanks ( I guess) for the pic link, Seriously Creamy. Showing up at the job like that would cause me years of emotional grief. If word ever got out to the guys I hang out with I'd have to leave town. No living that down.

My hunch is Nerakai is right on this one. No information in the article about what his job is. I wonder if he is a "hosto", and suddenly lost interest when the money dried up.

Pretty sure she knows the answer.

Having seen that picture, I can't help but feel a more appropriate question might be why he started dating her in the first place...!!!

Some of you guys are sick. It doesn't matter what the woman looks like, which is all you guys are focused on. Whatever the reason he was seeing her, it seems pretty clear he stopped in part because of her character, and that is what landed her in trouble. Get her some help in dealing with it (and whatever charges necessary) and move on. These kinds of petty comments on her looks instead of her actions are likely why she clung to this guy who seemed to like her and any little bit of affection she thought she was getting, and did not want to let it go.

Double whammy of nasty comments, vile remarks on the woman's appearance and victim blaming too. Shame on you.

Nobody that I know.

And ditto what smithinjapan and luddite said.

I haven't even looked at her picture, and I have to agree with the comments about her appearance and how that doesn't matter.

I once watched a documentary about the hosto lifestyle. They showed one woman handing over stacks of 10000 Yen notes, but they had pixelated her face of course. That's some smooth talking. I hope that's not what happened here.
