Man arrested for attempted sexual assault of woman at her apartment

15 Comments

Police in Tokyo have arrested a 31-year-old unemployed man on suspicion of attempting to sexually assault a woman in her 20s as she returned home earlier this month.

According to police, Yosuke Takashi followed the woman from a train station in Toshima Ward at around 11 p.m. on Aug 9, Kyodo News reported. As the woman opened the door to her apartment, Takashi grabbed her from behind and forced his way into the apartment.

The woman told police he brandished a knife at her and told her to be quiet. When he placed one hand over her mouth, she resisted and sustained a minor knife wound to her arm.

The woman screamed out for help and Takashi fled from the apartment, police said.

Police said Takashi, who lives in Fujimino, Saitama Prefecture, has denied the allegation and quoted him as saying he was drunk and can’t remember anything he did that night.

Police said Takashi was serving a suspended sentence for a smiliar offense committed in 2022.

How can he deny it if he does not remember anything from that night?

Police said Takashi was serving a suspended sentence for a smilier offense committed in 2022.

Good old suspended sentence by a misogynist judge who gave a wink wink nod nod, don't do it again. Poor woman.

it would be very interesting to know the details of the previous offense and how the suspended sentence was justified at the time, by the new offense it would be tempting to think more was necessary to prevent this new victim.

Now he’s off the street lock him up for a very long time until he is no longer a danger to women.

I'm guessing he confessed while being questioned and then bowed and apologize. Basically he showed remorse, so the Judge gave him a suspended sentence. That's Japanese justice system of 99% conviction in a nutshell.

Anyone who sexually assaults another person deserves the full weight of the law, and everyone should be able to walk anywhere without fear of being assaulted.

FWIW, in this particular case, there was no sexual assault, despite the title. Assault, yes, but not sexual. May well have become so, certainly. No one - I mean no one - condones assault, whether sexual or otherwise.

But why every time these articles get posted do we get the same virtue-signalling posts? You don't agree with sexual assault, Well, duh! Someone gets murdered, you don't agree with it. Well, duh!

there was no sexual assault, despite the title.

The title never claimed there was a sexual assault. Reading comprehension issues?

It’s like a horror movie. Poor girl. Human rights shouldn’t apply to this type of animals.

Habitual offender. Time to lock him up for a good, long stay.

Hopefully, because he committed this crime while the suspended sentence was in effect, he will now have to serve that sentence in prison, along with the new sentence for this crime.

So what was his excuse for his last crime........."Sorry your worship I was drunk and cannot remember a thing"........my dog, how many more warnings does this pestulant creep have to give? Believe me, men like this do not just change overnight.

Officer : Did you do this! Be honest!

Yosuke : I was drunk and I don't remember anything I did that night!!

Well I hope whit street surveilence and the prints lifted from the scene or the knife helps jog his memory!
