A 25-year-old man who has been arrested on suspicion of sexually molesting a woman on a street in Tokyo is also being questioned about his involvement in a number of similar cases since last October.
According to police, Aoki Mitsuzawa, a company employee, is accused of approaching a woman in her 20s as she walked home along a street in Nerima Ward at around 12:30 a.m. on Jan 29, Sankei Shimbun reported. Police said Mitsuzawa walked by the woman, then suddenly turned around, hugged her and groped her breasts and the lower part of her body.
Police said Mutsuzawa, who was identified after an analysis of street surveillance camera footage, has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying he got a sexual thrill out of groping women.
There have been several similar incidents reported in the same area since last October and police are questioning Mitsuzawa about those incidents as well.© Japan Today
