Man arrested for exposing himself to junior high school girls in Himeji park

32 Comments

Police in Himeji, Hyogo Prefecture, have arrested a 25-year-old man on suspicion of public indecency after he exposed himself to a group of junior high school girls in a park last year.

The incident occurred at around 4:15 p.m. on Oct 28 at a park in Shikama Ward, Kyodo News reported. Police said Kento Sekiya, who is a part-time teacher at a junior high school, dropped his pants in front of a group of five girls.

The girls, who do not attend the school where Sekiya taught, reported the incident to their school. Police arrested Sekiya on Thursday after identifying him through an analysis of park surveillance camera footage.

Police said Sekiya has admitted to the allegation and quoted him as saying “It turns me on sexually to expose myself to young girls.”

It’s about as rare as a female Japanese’s underwear getting stolen off their clothes line…quite common. It happened to my ex in Okinawa…ages ago. As you said, it’s just not reported.

I will, however, look at Wallace’s map.

Only in Japan would this be national “News”.

We need to teach girls to laugh and make fun of any man who does this. His sexual kicks would be quickly extinguished to be laughed at. It’s just an organ that ½ the population has and I never really understood why people get their kicks off about being nsked but nakedness is not something to be ashamed of. Name one man who would be offended to get flashed by a woman. It’s just stance. Girls need to be taught how to act with these kind of men. He does have issues and should not be near children in any way. I’m just commenting making fun of him perhaps would have dashed his getting off.

The problem here is that guys like him (and there are plenty around) do not see anything wrong with what they are doing. OK, maybe they get the theory, but his actual answer to the cops is honest. He is not lying or trying to make up some kind of excuse.

That makes this kind of thing difficult for society to know how to deal with it.

Pervs will be pervs, and yes they should be severely punished.

The depressing "this is Japan" angle is that Mr Sekiya is "a part-time teacher at a junior high school". I think the headline should read "Teacher arrested for exposing himself" to indicate the gravity of this situation.

It really turns him on, he said, maybe some prison time will turn him on also.........but then again, a slap on the wrist may have the same effect.

He might teach the inmates a thing or two.

Vigilance is required for the time being.

He was already arrested. Do you think there will be another one?

Vigilance is required wherever you live.

Walks round the castle gardens will never be the same again.

As reported in the article it did not happen in the castle park. It was in a Shikama park.

13 comments and still not one calling for a "sex offenders" register?

Anyone subjecting children to such criminal actions should receive stiff sentences.

Pun intended?

Now he'll have to stick it out in prison.

Ban him from teaching except to other inmates.

If what he said is true the guy is sick and needs to be taken out of society for a while.

Police said Sekiya has admitted to the allegation and quoted him as saying “It turns me on sexually to expose myself to young girls.”

This one made the news but unfortunately this happens way to often here in Japan as I have heard from students or women when they were students.

“It turns me on sexually to expose myself to young girls.”

That's one mentally sick guy, soon to be fired from his teaching job. Grow up and get help quick.

Sicko. Scary to think he was a teacher. What other things has the creep done?

Jail time is absolutely needed.

By the way, a indecent exposure in national headlines..

Not sure if being one of the stories in the Crime section of JT qualifies as "National Headlines", but point noted.

By the way, a indecent exposure in national headlines..

Proving again and again that Japan is one of the safest countries to live in the world..

A shark would be more remorseful after biting a surfer´s leg than this pervert.

Anyone subjecting children to such criminal actions should receive stiff sentences. I'd say a minimum of five years, or more. This stuff makes me sick.

No hint of remorse from this odious human in his comment.
