16 Comments

Police in Katori, Chiba Prefecture, have arrested an unemployed 28-year-old man for attempting to film women in a toilet at a shrine.

According to police, the incident occurred just after 2 p.m. on Sunday. Fuji TV reported that the suspect, Masataka Takahashi, entered the women's restroom at Katori Shrine. He then used his cell phone and stretched his arm beneath the partition between cubicles to try and film women going to the toilet. However, one woman spotted his arm and she called out to her acquaintances who detained the man.

Police said Takahashi has admitted to the charge and are questioning him about whether he has done this sort of thing before.

These kinds of creeps are all too common, and not only in Japan. However, this one seems especially stupid as well.

Here's a novel idea- Have him wear a sign telling everyone who passes what a pig he's been for say, 30 days in a hot spot, like Shinjuku or Ueno Station!

That's exactly what I was thinking. Unless you have a fetish for girls in toilets..And at a shrine nonetheless! A place of worship! this guy is a class act.

Bartholomew Harte: Here's a novel idea- Have him wear a sign telling everyone who passes what a pig he's been for say, 30 days in a hot spot, like Shinjuku or Ueno Station!

A 'novel' idea? Should he be put in a pillory for that time and be fed only rotting vegetable scraps from passersby who pity him? Should we end the 1 month spectacle with a public stoning?

She should have stepped hard on his arm and broken it. Lights. Camera. Wait. There's a break in the action.

I'd have said that the woman should have peed on his extended arm, but he might actually have liked that.
