Police officer arrested for throwing bodily fluid on woman’s bag linked to 2 other incidents

28 Comments

Police in Tokyo said Friday that a 27-year-old Kanagawa prefectural police officer who was arrested for throwing his bodily fluid on a woman’s bag in February has been linked to two similar incidents after a DNA match proved positive.

According to police, Shuhei Kasuya threw his bodily fluid from a container onto a woman’s bag while she was on the escalator at JR Oimachi Station in Shinagawa Ward at around 11 p.m. on Feb 25, Fuji TV reported. The woman didn’t notice the liquid until she had got on the train and reported it later to police.

Kasuya, who belongs to the riot police squad, was arrested Thursday after an analysis of station surveillance camera footage showed him throwing something on the woman’s bag. 

Furthermore, the DNA in the liquid matched that of Kasuya. It also matched bodily fluid thrown on women’s bags in two other incidents in April, police said.

Police said Kasuya, who was arrested on suspicion of property destruction, has admitted to the charge.

Bodily fluid? That could be anything from arm pit sweat to semen. Gotta love the vagueness of the Japanese media.

This riot squad cop has some serious issues.

He should be looking for a new job...

And people wonder why women don't want to report sex crimes to the police?

These incidents involving cops are way too common here and been going on forever...the management in charge of the HR culture in the national police agency obviously are in the wrong job since absolutely nothing ever changes apart from the useless obligatory " we,ll make efforts to prevent reoccurrence" sound bites.

Goes to show the stupidity of the cop, guess he never heard of DNA testing.

Such weird reporting. We'll all know that this means semen. Why is the reporting so prissy?

I don't get your reasoning. They reported it and the guy was arrested.

What kind of bodily fluid? Urine? Feces? Sperm?

We're all adults here. We can handle it.

I am fine with the genteel reporting. I am sure the details are out there if you don't mind spoiling your lunch.

A student many years ago who explained that she was in her sports wear because “someone” on the train had thrown “something” on her skirt. I didn’t ask for details...

This is more frequent than you may imagine!

why?

@ Mr Kipling "This is more frequent than you may imagine!"

Sure is, I've seen many such cases in the news over the years. They need to start publishing these miscreants, on a sex offender terrorist list. No telling how many and what STD's were in his body fluids.

He was arrested so he is not on the streets now he is enjoying his 20 minutes exercise and amazing food..

So if not his own ejaculate then whose? I think the fun might be twofold, the production of fluid and then the thrill of throwing it. What a strange perversion.

When he admitted to it they should have asked what it is...

threw his bodily fluid from a container onto a woman’s bag while she was on the escalator.

Lately I've seen quite a few weirdos, walking time bombs, loons, and coughing across at the oncoming side with no mask, on those long up and down inclined escalators in subway concourses. IMO they need cops at the tops and bottoms of these long escalators with aimed escalator cameras. Be careful on those escalators people.

@fuzzylogic,

yeah I agree, some of those subway escalators can be very steep, crowded, and very long, posing all kinds of risk in today's stressful climate these days.

So he was originally caught by station camera footage. I wonder what the next step was. Remember, this was in Shinagawa but Kasuya worked for Kanagawa Prefectural Police, so it wasn't likely the Shinagawa Police would have recognized him by sight. And even though they may have analyzed the DNA in the fluids, do they keep a database of DNA of police in a different prefecture? I thought DNA in Japan was not allowed to be kept except after an arrest or criminal conviction. So how did they get the connection to him and his DNA? I would have expected the case to have gone cold after analyzing the DNA in the fluid and not finding the DNA in the criminal suspect database. Yes, these incidents were in February and April, but it still seems like it would have been a dead-end after that. Something must have happened recently to allow Shinagawa Police to link him to these offenses.
