Hokkaido police searching for naked man in glasses who groped woman in sub-zero weather

By Casey Baseel, SoraNews24

In Sapporo, it’s still very much winter-coat weather, except for the naked man who decided to roam the streets of the city’s Higashi Ward in the early hours of last Friday.

Well, whether he was naked or not is slightly debatable, since he was at least wearing a pair of frameless glasses. His lack of any other attire though still qualify as public indecency, though, and the fact that he chose to walk around nude at roughly 1 a.m., when the outside temperature was a below-freezing -2.9 degrees Celsius qualifies as a severe breach of anything resembling common sense.

Unfortunately, this man was out for less stoic or admirable purposes than the naked man who was trying to train his body and spirit in Gifu Prefecture a few days prior. The Sapporo man instead was out for perverted thrills, as he accosted a woman in her 20s who was walking home, touching her thighs and breasts before she was able to fend off the attack, injuring her fingers as her press-on nails were peeled off as she resisted.

Police are now looking for the man, who is said to be in his 40s or 50s. Reports list his height as approximately 170 centimeters, with no mention of his other physical measurables, perhaps because of the influence of the cold weather.

At least he was wearing his glasses. Spring is around the corner and guys like these are starting to wake up from their hibernation. Seriously, were there any cameras to catch the person mentioned?

Should be rather easy to find him at the hospital, with frostbite to his... appendage.

The one big problem with writing this news story in a comedy style with little anecdote jokes, is that a woman was sexually assaulted and physically assaulted. Instead of starting with a joke about whether nudity counts wearing glasses, just get to the point of how that poor woman was assaulted. Get rid of the final joke too - i don't find it funny.

Not one to defend groping, but this guy has determination!

I wouldn’t be worried about frostbite on his bits. The hair around it is usually longer.

Find this loon and and lock him up. Please!!!

Trashy article and not at all funny.

Not one to defend groping, but this guy has determination!

I think you'll find most sex offenders tend to have an irrational determination.

Either someone thinks this article is a good old giggle, or someone thinks that sex offenders are rational.

Interesting, either way.

Hint: I'm back in my apartment. It's blue with black shutters and there's a ramen shop next door.

You write this story as satire however this is a very serious situation where this poor young woman has been sexually assaulted. I really think the writing style of this story is completely disrespectful to her.

Humour and derision are probably one of the most effective tools against such people, showing them to be the pathetic individuals they are. Silly little man in every sense of the word.

Word of advice, if you have stick on nails, don’t try scratching. Instead grab his balls and twist and squeeze as hard as you can. Much better way of discouraging him then and in the future!

I know everyone is trying to force their empty moral superiority here, but you have to admit, it is quite a funny article.

Can't see the humour in sexual assault, sorry.

"with no mention of his other physical measurable" I take it she was not impressed with his little P. P. so she didn't mention it to the cops or news reporters. Hey little winner man if you ain't got much to show then next time wear shorts.
