A 44-year-old Japan Air Lines pilot has been arrested for allegedly taking photos up the skirt of a woman on a train platform in Tokyo, police said Wednesday. The man is accused of having used a portable media player to take photos of a 25-year-old office worker's underwear at JR Kamata Station last Sunday night.
According to a TBS report, the man was sent to the prosecutor on Monday, but was later released. He was quoted by police as saying that he had seen a program about taking up-skirt photos on TV a few days earlier, and he wondered if he could do it too.
The news comes just days after another JAL pilot was arrested in Chiba for trying to steal the underwear of a 22-year-old woman from her home. He was caught prowling around naked on her balcony.© Japan Today
