A 70-year-old man, who stole underwear from a woman’s apartment in Tokyo last week, was arrested after he was caught on the balcony of her apartment in Adachi Ward, police said Monday.

According to police, Sadao Nishikata was arrested on July 16 at the apartment of the woman who is in her 20s, Fuji TV reported. A male friend of the woman was with her at the time and apprehended Nishikata on the balcony.

Five days earlier, the woman had reported the theft of her underwear. After he was arrested, Nishikata told police he wanted to steal the woman’s underwear while it was hung out to dry on the balcony. He was quoted as saying he got a thrill from wearing women’s underwear.

Police said they are questioning Nishikata about 14 other recent cases of women’s underwear being stolen in the same area.

Honest question. Do women ever steal men's underwear? Jockstraps and whatnot?

@Reckless

I'm sure someone does... I mean, there's everything out there.

In my experience women only steal men's underwear to throw them away because of holes lol

Stolen woman's underwear? Really! Do you mean ''woman's stolen underwear?"

Either way, another creep apprehended. Only a few million left to go.

Doesn't say much for the efficiency of the local police.

That’s hardly a sex crime! lol

It’s theft and home invasion.

Still no sex offenders register.

And still no need. A sex offender registry does not stop first offenses obviously, because no one is on it until they offend. Whether it stops any second offenses is debatable because when you put a scarlet letter on someone for life they have no solid basis for reform.

A sex offender registry seems to be more about having an alternative to stoning for the thrill of the masses rather than keeping society safe.

Anyway it looks to me like a man with no love in his life finally snapped at 70.

"A 70-year-old man"

"told police he wanted to steal the woman’s underwear"

"He was quoted as saying he got a thrill from wearing women’s underwear"

He's just following his true nature, after all those years.

Perhaps they need to bring back those used panty vending machines.

@fuzzylogic,

yeah those machines were in a lot of places:

"While panty vending and gacha machines have largely disappeared from the Japanese landscape, that's not to say a pervert can't find used panties. It's actually disturbingly easy. Like many other commodities, their distribution has moved online."

If there is a register police know who check with if something happens.

Also, just the knowledge that it is there should deter repeat offences if you're a sex offender and you know there is a very strong likelihood you'll be picked up straight away if something happens.

So what're you doing after retirement?

Stealing and wearing women's panties.

You obviously don't know what a sex offender registry is. Police have always been able to check a person's history for anything, even traffic tickets. A sex offender registry is so the public can find people with past sex offenses and shame them. You would think people would be hot for a killer registry, even just to know who committed manslaughter. Nope. People want a list with panty thieves on it. Or the guy whose now wife was underage when they were dating. Or the guy who got caught pleasuring himself in his own vehicle. Or the teen girl and boy who sexted. I hope you don't even think I am joking.

Lol, so a a sex offenders register is not a register with sex offenders on it?? Right...

In England the public wanted access to it but it was partially refused.

Must be fit to be climbing up balconies

Imagine if he was your grandfather.

At least you would know what to get him for his birthday.

I'd suggest it was actually Happosai, but I don't recall him actually WEARING them....:)

He is a waste of human space.

He could have at least waited until he got home before putting it on.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

dude couldn't wait to get home to put them on?

Didn’t say he was putting them on while on the balcony.

He was quoted as saying he got a thrill from wearing women’s underwear.

While I don't condone such atrocious behaviour, mate, just go buy your own frilly things or order it online! Keep people out of your fetish and leave her unmentionables alone!

I assume he was wearing the previous underwear he stole while attempting to steal more. It'd be strange for him to put them on then and there, but the whole thing is strange to begin with.

My mind boggles at the thought of a elderly chap trying to squeeze in to some small pair of tiny ladies panties, it would be easier just to go out and buy some from a shop or online, for gods sake don't break into her apartment to steal them.

“I Was Drunk “...I can hear it now.

For crying out loud, just buy them from the vending machines.

This is merch worthy. He'd be a great source of inspiration for a t-shirt.

She should sue the pants off him.

These stories are so common in Japan years on and never stops me for the giggling lol. A 70 year old man still got enough testosterone to climb up a balcony to steal some panties.
