Stalker mixed urine into face lotion of object of his affection

While Japan has a reputation for being one of the safer countries in which to live, there are certain worrying trends when it comes to stalking. Regardless of gender, there are some people who take their fascination with an idol or celebrity too far and ultimately end up violating their privacy.

But not all stalkers concern themselves with famous targets. Police officers in Nara City were confronted with a peculiar case that involved a 46-year-old defendant Takafumi Doi and a female co-worker, aged 44, whom he’d taken a shine towards. Doi has already been arrested before for breaking into his co-worker’s residence, but the terms of his re-arrest for multiple break-ins through January 25 to May 17 have a chilling additional detail.

According to the police station, Doi duplicated the key to his co-worker’s house and during his unsolicited visits mixed some of his own urine into bottles of her face lotion, claiming that “I felt as though I could stake a claim on her by marking her with my essence.” Two of the victim’s lotion bottles are suspected to be contaminated.

It gets even worse when considering Doi’s line of work – as a care worker in Nara’s Shikishimacho, one would expect him to know the appropriate way to dispose of his own body fluids (and the importance of hygiene, particularly towards those you care about). The police are currently investigating Doi’s case in order to determine any additional criminal activity.

Commenters were, naturally, appalled:

“Disgusting.”

“I bet you anything that it wasn’t only pee he mixed in there.”

“‘Staking a claim’? What is he, a dog?”

“That poor woman. You can’t avoid creeps like this even when you’re 44…”

“I felt as though I could stake a claim on her by marking her with my essence.” 

A real alpha male there. (rolls eyes)

Stalkers are always a dangerous threat and the police should never treat any reports lightly.

Each country has their own types of dangers. As a woman, I do feel as if I am in more danger of everyday crimes and perverts in Japan. In other countries, there was the fear of one day that “big” incident would occur. My first instances up until my 100th plus of experiencing inappropriate touching and physical sexual harassment have all been in Japan. It never happened to me in America or Europe. In America I’ve dealt with cat calling but no one tries to grope me on a moving train or stalks me. There was a time I had to change my entire route home because some guy kept showing up at my work train station and stalked me home.

Even though I reported him to the local police, they told me he was just probably surprised to see a foreigner and that the man was more nervous about me than I was of him. So I had to start waiting for my husband.

Are you sure the fluids are urine? The translation makes it sound like something else. Things like this are terrifying. As a father of two little girls, there are really some very creepy and disturbed men out there in the world.

How did they discover what he did to those bottles?

Also, how did they know about the break-ins?

Unless you are a woman, child, elderly or handicapped. Then, the dangers are as real as any other country. Gawd help you if you are a combination of these demographics.

What in tarnation are you talking about? That’s not even remotely correct. What messed up numbers were you basing this statement on?

This loon is obviously one of the mentally deficient idiots who had never been diagnosed.

What's the success rate on that tactic? Asking for a friend.

Ok, except your're not. So you're letting your irrational feelings determine your outlook. That's not good for your emotional health.

Whatever makes you think that's specific to Japanese, and that a single incident would prove Japan is more dangerous than other countries? That makes no sense.

Now this guy was arrested before for multiple break-ins into his co-worker’s residence. Just wondering how any of these arrest came about. Did he confess then the arrest happened, did the co-worker find him in her house, did a neighbor see him entering the co-workers house & call the police .... Wish the article had more information. So he made a copy of her key ..... This article stated they are co-workers, So are they still co-workers after he's been arrested multiple times in the past ???? He should have been fired from his job after the first arrest. Hope he does prison time & his fellow prisoners mark their territory by smearing human POO all over Takafumi Doi...
