A 33-year-old high school teacher was arrested for trespassing on Thursday, after he allegedly forced his way into a male university student’s apartment in Kumamoto City and locked himself in the toilet for nearly two hours.
Police said Toshikazu Satono entered the unlocked sixth-floor apartment at about 10 a.m. and asked the 23-year-old postgraduate student to let him hide in the apartment. He then entered the toilet and locked it. The student called police at about 11.40 a.m. Officers rushed to the scene and Satono finally came out, and was arrested. Satono and the student did not know each other.
Shuji Okamura, head teacher at Kumamoto Technical High school, said Satono called the school at around 8 a.m. telling them he had to take his wife to hospital, and that he would be taking the day off. Okamura also said Satono was a hard worker and popular with the students, and added that he was really surprised by the incident.© News reports
