Man arrested for exposing himself to school girl admits to at least 50 similar offenses

29 Comments

A 43-year-old man arrested on suspicion of committing a lewd act in front of a high school girl has told police he committed similar offenses on at least 50 occasions.

According to police, Tomoyuki Fujita, a company employee from Ichikawa, Chiba Prefecture, followed a high school girl into an elevator at an apartment building in Edogawa Ward in Tokyo at around 4:30 p.m. on Dec 11, Fuji TV reported. No one else was in the elevator at the time. Police said Fujita dropped his pants and exposed himself to the girl and then got off at the next floor.

Earlier that same day, Fujita is also accused of riding his bicycle up behind a junior high school girl as she walked along a street, and groping her breasts.

Police said Fujita was identified after an analysis of surveillance camera footage in the apartment building lobby and street surveillance camera footage.

Police said Fujita has admitted to the allegations and quoted him as saying he had done similar things to school girls on at least 50 occasions since December 2020. He told police he did it to fulfill his sexual desires.

How the hell did he get away with this before? Did no one notice his behavior? Was no one brave enough to come forward? And for therapy make him watch a series of pictures and make sure he gets an electric cattle prod to the genitals every time a picture of a female comes up.

What is it about Japanese men and school uniforms ? Can somebody explain this to me. Where does this fetish come from ?

This fetish exists in the US as well. Perversion is everywhere. Our own cultures are just plain sick. Look at the recent 'leaders' the US has had and see.

Is this a serious question?

It comes from unrealistic outdated ideas of what boys and girls are and should be. Educated guess.

He grabbed a junior high school girl’s breasts, that’s sexual assault.

Victims are unwilling to report due to the shame that they will experience.

Every act unpunished emboldens the perpetrators.

If nothing changes, nothing changes.

Seriously, you are playing down and making light of sexual assaults against children?

That’s unbelievable, you should be ashamed of yourself for writing that.

Sven Asai is right. The pervert in this story is disgusting, but the story is about exhibitionism, not "sexual assault against children". Lets keep some perspective.

> By the way, what kind of sentencing do these scumbags get since the stories are never followed up on here?

We regularly see stories about the sentences passed about previously reported crimes, so I do not know what you mean.

He deserves the rope in my book, but he'll probably just get a slap on the wrist and back to the street he goes.

One of those small magicians guillotines should fix things.

Again, too mediaeval. Psychiatric treatment required here.

A serial sex offender shrugged off by so many. He needs to be on a register, he needs to be in prison.

"admits to at least 50 similar offenses"

a serial one WTH....

It's probably better than the sexual education (or lack thereof) that the girls are taught in school.

Really? I’d rather my daughter took a class than be flashed in an elevator.

There seriously needs to be a sex offenders list here to stop weirdos like this guy getting near kids..

That would have done nothing to stop this particular case. If, after conviction, he's put on a sex offenders register of some kind it would have to have some very strict conditions and monitoring to keep him completely away from children, think about it. He would practically need to be locked up 24/7 so why not just do that anyway.

"I’m sure they do raise suspicion. But there’s not much people can do to actually stop him."

You are right,

Let them "theys increase to untold proportions to bring in the great wrath.

Just sick in the head. Why do these “men” think that females have even the slightest interest in seeing their equipment? They just don’t.

We need to snip this problem in the bud. I actually heard of a weird foreign guy who did something like this in Japan, targeting women in empty elevators then stopping the elevator and masturbating in front of them. I am sure he did not end up well.

It is. I asked because it would be interesting to know how a certainly fetish develops.

How can these people commit so many of these crimes without raising any suspicion around them?

I'm sure it does raise suspicion but the combination of victims not stepping forward to report the incident and people's tendency of ignoring things to "mind their own business resulting in burying their heads in the sand...well it's no wonder there are so many of these crimes that go about unpunished.

I have little hope he'll be severely punished but hey it's officially a new year, maybe things will be different in 2022?
