Police in Monbetsu, Hokkaido, have arrested a 60-year-old man on suspicion of indecent exposure after he dropped his pants in front of a boy and a girl who were sitting on a bench at a shopping center.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 8 p.m. on Saturday. Hokkaido Broadcasting Corp reported that the man, who is a construction worker, approached the two elementary school students and suddenly dropped his pants and underpants in front of them. He then pulled his pants back up and ran away.

The boy called out to his mother who was nearby and she notified police. The man was identified after an analysis of surveillance camera footage and arrested at his home on Sunday morning.

Police quoted the man as saying he got a thrill out of exposing himself to the girl.

The flasher will get a bigger thrill in a police cell for two years.

Y0 years old, 60! Can you believe it. Wonder if he has a history of these disgusting activities or he suddenly turned potty.

he got a thrill out of exposing himself to the girl.

And he did it to the boy who was there too. It's even worse when an elementary age girl probably doesn't much if anything about a male sex organ.

Let's see if this perv gets a 'thrill' when he has to undergo a strip search before reporting to prison!

The best thing to do to a flasher is to laugh and giggle at his parts. Personally, I've never really been bothered with this weird act. Hopefully, the kids had a good laugh about it.

I think the kids are more likely to be highly traumatized by the event.

He is a perv and needs to be dealt with but he is just a flasher, not an alien.

Speed, this is what happened with my ex-girlfriend. She was on the tube in London. There was only one other person in the carriage. This was a guy sitting opposite her. He unzipped his fly and pulled out his how's your father and she just totally cracked up. Said she couldn't stop laughing. It just seemed so funny to her. The guy quickly rehoused his equipment and got off at the next stop.

No trauma there. Not for her anyway!

Flashers want attention of the wrong kind. So don't pay any attention to their flashing and they will get frustrated.

A swift kick to the knots would put an end to this! But then again.....he might get a thrill from that too!

This would be a perfect time for a S.O. list!

My Japanese wife got the treatment on a bus in Geneva. There are sickos everywhere.

Ask a few women in your office or family how often they have seen or know someone who has flashed them in Tokyo.

Hopefully he will get hard time. The mother had the kids out kind of late for elementary schoolers. Still, they should not have had to suffer from such disgusting behavior by a fellow Japanese. Seldom do I hear of foreign flashers in Japan.

1 knife + his frank and beans + life in prison = he'll never flash children again.

My ex was flashed by a weirdo, she calmly said to him, “what is that? Why you have such a small little ugly thing. You must be ashamed. How can you show people such a pathetic little thing?”. She told me he started crying and ran away.

' Castration ' is a word which came to mind.

Filthy, sick old pervert needs to be locked away.

This is a great example of why Japan needs a child sex offender register. This creep could be banned from being in close proximity to any minor for the rest of his miserable days - IF there were a register.

Flashers want attention of the wrong kind. So don't pay any attention to their flashing and they will get frustrated.

The way you deal with those who expose themselves to children is to jail them, not ignore them.

There should be a system to put asleep the extremely insane, mad and/or psychopaths just as you would put down a sick animal. The few differences are the shape and animals have more values, intelligence and honor than these people do.

In pushing for the death penalty for a nonviolent offense, we have to wonder about your mental state. Animals go naked, btw.
