Man arrested after urinating in drink bottle of woman coworker because 'he liked her'

During the hot summer, Japan’s wide variety of drinks from vending machines is a godsend. They have everything, whether you’re craving a can of dashi fish broth, or drinking something out of a mayonnaise jar.

One drink that you will not find in Japan’s vending machines, however, is urine.

Unfortunately that’s what nearly happened to one woman in Hyogo Prefecture’s Kobe City on July 28 and August 2, when she opened the office refrigerator to find that her drink bottle had been tampered with by someone putting pee into it.

The woman regularly kept her drinks in the fridge, so when she went to get the bottle, she noticed that something was off about its color and smell. After reporting it to her company, and a having an inner office investigation carried out, it was found out that a man had been seen carrying around her bottle earlier.

When questioned, the man confessed, saying that he did it because he “liked her.”

The suspect in question was a 24-year-old unemployed man who had done temp work at the same company as the woman. His affections were one sided, and after he was arrested under charges of stalking on August 27, he was fired from his position.

According to police, the suspect admitted to the charges, saying, “I definitely put urine in her drink bottle.” However he also claims that he “has no memory of August 2nd.”

Why he would admit to the crime on day but not the other is not clear, but on both days, the woman did not drink any of the liquid or put her mouth on the bottle.

Japanese netizens were uniformly disgusted:

“I put drink bottles in my office’s fridge, so I’m gonna be careful from here on.”

“I’m always shocked at the new levels of depravity some guys are capable of.”

“That is so gross.”

“I don’t understand what he hoped would happen.”

“Wasn’t there someone who put their saliva in someone’s drink too?”

I have heard of these peenuts before that get off on peeing on people or others drinking their pee. I am glad he was dealt with.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

Another pervert.

16 ( +18 / -2 )

So many strange people.

If he liked her than try to make an approach and make a talk.

But urinating in her drinking bottle is a fetish or mental issue.

And again the well-known Japanese excuse "I don't recall".

How often is this used lol

A story of true love for the ages. Are they sure there was only urine in the bottle and not any other bodily emissions?

Misplaced affection and urine…,

6 ( +7 / -1 )

You're in trouble if this is how you display affection.

8 ( +9 / -1 )

That is just **** disgusting!!!

6 ( +8 / -2 )

I'm no expert but I very much doubt that mutual affection would be very high on the list of responses to having someone pee in your drink.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Disgusting individual.

6 ( +7 / -1 )

mental issues?!

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Just marking his territory.

Lions do it too.

5 ( +9 / -4 )

Further proof the mental health of this society is slowly declining the past several years. The never ending lockdowns and pandemic certainly did not help matters.

I remember i heard that you can make someone to like you by putting something from you to a person. lol did he just believed it?

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Haha lol. You like a girl and want to show her your affection by peeing in her drink??? Wtf was this guy thinking? Sending her flowers or a card would be less creepy!

2 ( +3 / -1 )

What drink did she have? Calpis?

10 ( +11 / -1 )

He was probably a pee...ping tom as well ;)

0 ( +2 / -2 )

No name?

What a sick pathetic clown..

Modern Japanese romance

7 ( +10 / -3 )

It never occurred to him to just ask her out on a date?

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Mental cases and psychos like this trash need to be locked up in a facility. Forever.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

Sort of like Cowpis Soda. But the name should be changed to Manpis Soda

Makes perfect sense. He loved her, so he peed in her drink. It's what we all yearn to do. Maybe his brother is the guy who spreads poop on little girls' backpacks.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

From now on women better put numbered security labels on the bottle cap before placing bottles or any food in to a company refrigerator. One never knows which one of the company staff is a disgusting pervert with some disgusting idea of how to introduction himself!!!

What drink did she have? Calpis?

Winner!

I certainly hope that Japan has mental institutions that will treat this person and keep him separated from society until he learns his lesson. Unlike the USA, where the emphasis is on the rights of the perpetrators and not the victims.

Nah, this guy is just a nutcase. There ware no lockdowns in Japan, btw.

My thought exactly!

Not so much...I think ANY English speaker when first encountering the product has a similar thought albeit, for me, it was Cowp.., and it tasted to me about like that...

1 ( +2 / -1 )

The drink is Calpis but does very much sound like cow piss. That's the exact reason the drink never took off in the US. Classic case study in marketing.

something peeed him off

Oh he was too busy feeling what he thought was love for her that he forgot to remember he urinated in her drink.

Did she tell him " urin-cappable of love "

Luckily when she uncapped the bottle she didn't consume any.

Unbelievable! He is another psychopath.

You like her so you...do that? Urine big trouble now pee brain.

Nothing says love like peeing in her drink.

Once a Perv, Always a Perv.

That’s one way to get her attention, I suppose? Is she gonna go out with him now?

0 ( +1 / -1 )

I always thought telling a girl you like her, and asking her out usually works.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Meh, this just sounds like some made up comedy sketch someone wrote while on the toilet.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Nothing quite says "I love you" more than a bottle of your urine..........

WTF?!

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

Did she disinfect her hands after touching the bottle, opening and smelling it?

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Ure in love.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

because 'he liked her'

Weirdest way to show affection. That guy has serious mental issues. Safe to say that his chances of dating her are now zero.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

The way to a woman's heart is thru her stomach?

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

You get a better class of nutter in Japan...

Wish I could work out how peeing in a person's bottle can be a sign of affection... totally bonkers.

Seems to be the type of guy who'd love Golden Showers!

This disgusting guy is a case for a mental hospital. What he did is clearly 'not normal'.

In Japan you have some very strange people around. However as long as they do not commit any crime there is not much what can be done about it.

Nothing says "I love you" like a bottle full of urine.

Valentine's Day with this guy must be different

I hope the woman stays away from Pocari Sweat.

""One drink that you will not find in Japan’s vending machines, however, is urine."" never be so sure about anything these days, someone will prove otherwise.

Well, we have Calpis. I guess that sounds close enough.

Maybe it's just me . . but I'm thinking he may not be her Mr. Right.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

I bet she was pissed off.

Having trouble holding it in after reading this.
