Cop arrested for breaking into female cop’s apartment in Chiba

70 Comments

A 37-year-old senior constable was arrested for trespassing on Wednesday night, after he allegedly entered a 28-year-old policewoman's apartment in Funabashi City at around 10 p.m.

Police said the female officer came home and saw the man standing on her balcony, after which she ran to a nearby police box. A 21-year-old male officer returned with her to the fourth-floor apartment, and he was sprayed with mace but was able to detain the man some 60 meters away. The man was later confirmed to be Daizo Kanda, a senior constable at Chiba Higashi police station.

Kanda has admitted to the entering the woman’s apartment and said: “I liked her and wanted to know more about her.”

Way creepy.

Daizo Kanda, a senior constable at Chiba Higashi police station.

What is it with J cops? What a pathetic bunch of power tripping losers!

Smith! Of course he is right: JT needs a special "police crime" section. It seems as though more than half the crimes reported are done by policemen. What is going on?

It is like Fahrenheit 451, where the firemen START the fires. In Japan, the police need policing.

Sheesh. 10 pm... creepy guy on balcony... then the constable maced the 21 year old?

Terrible.

Lol. I want to know more about this cop.

haha. I have to agree with previous posts on this and other stories - JT, GIVE US A 'POLICE CRIME' SECTION!

Okay, I have to say good job to the 21 year old cop because he took a real chance here going in alone, getting maced, and then still bagging the dirtbag cop! I do wonder if the "60 meters away" meant horizontal or vertical distance (yup! I would have flipped douchebag off the balcony for macing me!) Obviousely he survived to be questioned. I do have to question the police procedures in this case. it's 10PM, dark, and an unidentified man is standing on a woman's balcony. They send ONE YOUNG COP to investigate ... WTF? Was he the only one awake in the Koban at the time? Anyway, great job young man! You're proof that there is some courage and dedication to the job of being a police officer!

Agreed. The first thing many of them ask a woman on their first date is 'What color panties are you wearing?'

Here we go again, let's list the charges.

One would be breaking and entering. Another might be destruction of property. Obviously the female officer (off duty at the time) was scared in the situation, so you can add in a charge of assault if you consider that the litmus test is that victim feel a sense of fear (as opposed to a charge of assault and battery).

All in all, it would appear that the senior constable has been rather successful, in terms of actions that warrant say 5 to 8 years hard labor. Let's just hope that the prosecutor's pursue this sordid case with its undertones of a deep-seated perversion to the full extent of the law.

total disgrace!! All public personnel need to go through a thorough psychologic examination before hiring these dudes. This is very common in the US and should be implemented aggressively in Japan.

Man it must be November's pervy cop week. If he's gone to her apartment to "get to know more about her" you can bet the guy's been in her handbag at work as well.

And what guy uses mace to defend himself, and a copper too, presumably well-trained (no snickering!)

And Nuckin, agreed on the weak police procedure. Makes you wonder what the senior cops were doing at the time (well we know what one was doing!)

How many cops were apprehended in total of last month? I can think of a few articles on here. But just imagine the dark figures; who'd report the police when the police are the perpetrators? Really makes you loose that last few ounces of faith one might have had in the keystones here.

Jesus Christ, JT... what about a new J-CLOWN Keystone Crime SECTION?? I think just about everyone here agrees with me.

I have a question...if the woman was also a cop how come she did she run to get another one? Wouldn't she know some form of self defense or maybe carry a gun or mace herself?...just curious...

0 ( +0 / -0 )

You know, for most of us here on the JT board, this it's either pure entertainment or completely pathetic. I never really hear my Japanese freinds talking about these J cops. My question though, is, are all these crimes and shenanigans being reported in the J press? If so, isn't the J public just disgusted with their police force? This I'm curious about.

In real police work you don't go rambo or like the movies, if your life or someone eles's life is not in danger you retreat and call for backup first, before engaging a suspect. You're no good dead with no one knowing what your situation is.

DC2020 - my husband reads the newspaper every day, and when I tell him about the J-cop news reports, he has never heard of any of them.

Why didn't he run away when he saw her?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

What a goof. He was on this girl's balcony. She comes home. Sees him, and runs away. He, of course, stands there like the socially retarded dweeb that he is, probably imagining that she went out to buy some sexy lingerie or something. He's a cop, she's a cop. It didn't register as a possibility in his panty fantasy ridden mind that she might be going out to get more cops?

this sounds like an episode from the pink panther or something.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Good question yelnats. I'm guessing that she saw him but he didn't see her. Perhaps she had seen him while outside walking up to her apartment building. This is just creepy. A cop again!! As someone else mentioned, I think all wanna-be cops should have to undergo some kind of psych evalutation before they become police officers. This seems far beyond a few isolated cases and something needs to be done! Just in the last few months or so we've heard about a cop groping, a cop taking pictures up a girls skirt, a cop stealing panties, a cop drunk driving...(please let me know if I missed one) And I really want to know what happens to these officers after their offense. Are they fired? Suspended? Reprimanded? Spanked? What?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

5Speedracer5: You beat me to it. Regardless, I'm glad my idea is catching on. Perhaps they can even make a sitcom: the Special Victim's Unit really are the SPECIAL VICTIMS (of the police). Of course, it'd be all about rapists/underwear theives and chikans, but still. Ah, then again, since more than half the crimes these days seem to be committed by cops, it really wouldn't be all the 'special', would it.

I guess not much can be done about the cops when it's the cops doing it.

I really feel bad for this guy... he must be so lonely! I have had nights myself where I thought "is there any other way I could just mess up things tonight!". Don't crack out the whip yet.... Maybe this was just a bad day for him!

I'm surprised a cop was even there. 95% of the time when I walk by a koban it has that "we're on patrol" sign on the desk. Does that mean they're inside sleeping?

Its just not Japanese police, though everyone likes to pick on the j-police here, there are bad cops and good cops in every country of the world. At least I haven't been reading about J-police being involved in mafia hits, murder, arson and other major crimes like that!

I wouldn't call J-cops bad, just unbelievably stupid! Also, I don't think this problem is systematic of being a J-cop, but rather just being a J-man.

Did the headline change? This morning it said he was on her balcony and they called it trespass. OK. I was fine with that. Now they are saying he BROKE IN. That is breaking and entering. He was actually INSIDE the apartment? At least in the US, those are two different levels of culpability.

Stupid either way, but one involves actually breaking barriers, and the other is just being creepy.

How romantic??

A senior constable broke into a female's apartment and all he wanted to d is to break in so she would fall in love with him, “I liked her and wanted to know more about her.”

Wow if a guy broke into my apartment just so he get to know me better, I think I would have been swept out of my feet..

He just had a sexual awakening (as males normally have) by thinking he could score using this method but unfortunately it turned sour. Look on the bright side, at least there's no fags in the force; that would be really shocking.

madoka: Romantic? No. Twisted, creepy, illegal and immoral? Yes!! dasyhard: Sexual awakening? He's 37! This is no 'method' of wooing a woman, this is completely wrong. And what do you mean by 'at least there's not fags in the force'?

dolphingirl: I didn't mean to sound like a stereotypical and gender biased pig but with the history of these J-Cops causing so much these sexual in nature crimes, it led me to say this. And with that said, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the cops are gay too.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

dasyhard: Yes, I'm sure that many cops are gay (please don't say fag because it's an offensive term) but I don't see how that has anything to do with police officers commiting crimes of a sexual nature.

JT should create a sub-section in the crime section just for cops. It seems there are more cops committing crimes than preventing them.

Well the amount of incidents involving police officers ....and women or their underwear leads me to believe that they specifically seek out perverts....funny how some of these cops who arrests guys on the trains for touching women or taking up skirt pics get arrested for the same offense...I think there should only be WOMEN JP's ...I one of them felt me up on a train or broke into my home ...it would end in a good way.......... :-)

The police woman was lucky she glanced up at her veranda before going into the building, saw the pervert and (quite intelligently) got backup. Who knows if she would be unharmed or even alive today otherwise.

Sure, but they aren't systemic like the JCops... Every once in a blue-moon, you will get some criminal cop on the force who will rape a girl or pull a DUI which ends up killing some people, yes, that occasionally happens.

But you will never ever read about incident after incident, week after week of cops breaking into homes, groping women, or stealing their underwear.... In the states, every single cop, with the small exception of some small hick-town / back-woods police departments in Alabama, Georgia, or Texas (which you would probably never ever have the occasion to run into) are throughly screened with psyche evals, lie detectors and background checks. Perverts like those of the JCop police force would never make it past the initial screening.

Um, you havent been to Florida yet mindovermatter. You would swiftly change your mind here. The cops are here are so corrupt its not even funny. It seems like at least once a month there is yet another FBI sting and they haul away more cops for doing illegal things. They even arrested the sheriff too - and I thought he was one of the good guys after dealing with him personally for a police matter. You just cant tell.

It must be very romantic for a cop to break into a female cop's apartment. Just for introduction... I can tell that Japanese cop took classes in charm school.
