He has been doing this repeatedly over time. Glad they got him before he graduated to something worse.

"Police said there have been many similar assaults in the same area [Toshima Ward near Ikebukuro] this month and said Shimizu has admitted [ after being caught ] to his involvement in at least 20 of those incidents." Sheesh, the cyclops did not step up patrolling the area, and calibrating those surveillance cameras?
