Ex-cop arrested over rape in underground passageway

32 Comments

A former assistant police inspector was arrested on Thursday for sexual assault after he allegedly raped a passerby in an underground passageway in Kumamoto last Friday, police said Thursday. The suspect, identified as Hiroyuki Ouse, 46, denies the charges, and was quoted as saying, "I don't remember anything."

According to prefectural police, Ouse -- who is is now a notary public -- received a three-month pay cut in March 2007, as disciplinary action while he was working in the organized crime division after he was caught stealing at a supermarket. He voluntarily retired from the force soon after. In January 2008, he registered as a notary public with the prefecture.

This latest incident occurred on Sept 4 at around 4:10 a.m. Ouse allegedly sneaked up behind a 19 year-old woman, pinned her down, then dragged her into an underground passageway. The victim told police Ouse threatened to kill her if she screamed.

JT should start a 'cops in trouble' section. Or better still, there are enough cops in illegal activities to start a second newspaper.

How did they catch the guy? Did this criminal genius give the girl his namecard before he raped her?

Anyhow, good on the victim for stepping forward and reporting it with enough info to catch the creep. Hope the idiot goes away for a long time.

How do these idiots get in.

He's unlucky to be an ex-cop, if he were still a cop he would never get arrested.

Ah, Japan's finest. By saying "I don't remember anything" is he trying to set up the "I was drunk" defence, which would give him a free pass (in Japan)?

Naive mode on

Wait, isn't the police expected to protect people from crime, instead of doing crime to the people? Just wondering. Many cops in Japan seem to have difficulties with keeping these two things apart.

Naive mode off

Unbelievable! And VERY good on the girl for coming forwards and reporting everything. That must have been incredibly traumatic for her. SO glad they got the guy before he can do this to anyone else.

The daily cop-is-criminal story is in. Sorry to point this out yet again, but there you have it. You need only look at the Recently Popular Posts links on the right hand side of this article if you're in denial: only a few days ago they were stealing underwear (for the second time in as many weeks), etc. The cops here are really something else. This time it's rape, to boot.

He better get some jail time and not just get canned or a suspended sentence.

How did she identify him? Did they round up the usual suspects? Rape does not make sense to me. How can that be fun?

Pretty crazy ex-cop. He moved like a wild and untrained dog. He should be on a leash.

That brings down my belief in the Japanese Police System........

Till now .....I strongly believed in the professional ethics of Japanese Police though I got some views by close Japanese Friends that Japanese Police is not 100 % professional.

This definately proves those views.......I feel let down........

Make it happen JT!

Excuse my ignorance, but what the heck is a "notory public?" If that is an English expression, I`ve never heard it in my life before. As regards this animal - he should be locked up for good, preferably with some other sexual deviants who will treat him as he deserves. What a sicko.

It should be Notary public. In some countries this is awarded to respectable citizens. They certify the authenticity of some documents. I think that you should have some legal background as well.

Heheh, are ya guys (or gals) jumping to conclusions already?

"I don't remember anything" that's not exactly a workable defense is it?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

usaexpat, the "I don't remember anything" could also mean that he was high on drugs at the time and really does NOT remember anything. Just a little bit more to tarnish his name with in the end... But part of the problem is this may just go away unless he confesses, because it is his work against her word. She says he did it, he says he does not remember doing it - which way does the court system itself swing? Is there enough evidence to prosecute him? Or will he get away with a fine and warning just because he used to be a policeman?

I guess if you didn't do something, you wouldn't remember doing it.
