A 41-year-old cram school teacher has been arrested for attempting to use his smartphone to film up the skirt of a female student.
The alleged voyeurism took place during a lesson at a cram school in Funabashi City, Chiba Prefecture, on Dec 13, Sankei Shimbun reported. Daisuke Noma, 41, was giving an individual tutorial to a 16-year-old female high school student.
During the lesson, Noma is accused of pointing his smartphone under the girl’s skirt as she was reading. However, the girl noticed Noma crouching suspiciously with his smartphone.
Afterwards, the girl and her parents consulted with the police. Police said Noma has admitted to the charge. He was quoted as saying, “Since her skirt was short, I thought I could easily take some images.”
Police said Noma also works as a magician, performing under the stage name Daisuke Hinata.© Japan Today
