A police sergeant in Kanagawa Prefecture has been arrested for exposing himself to female passersby in a public park in Kawasaki, police said Monday.
According to investigators, the 34-year-old traffic division sergeant, who has been named as Yoshinori Kurata, returned to his Kawasaki home briefly after work on Saturday night before going to the park inebriated and removing all of his clothes except his shoes and socks, Fuji TV reported.
Kurata was arrested after police received a report from a 63-year-old woman who encountered him in the park at around 10:30 p.m. He was quoted by police as saying he stripped off because he finds women's reactions "exciting," Fuji reported.
Police are currently investigating the possibility of Kurata's involvement in over 20 other similar incidents that have been reported in the area since January.© Japan Today
