Man arrested for second time for secretly filming women in toilets

32 Comments

A 42-year-old unemployed man, who was given a suspended sentence last year for secretly filming women in the toilet of a bar, has been arrested again by police in Tokyo for filming women in the toilet of a cafe in Setagaya Ward.

According to police, Ryo Natori, a resident of Sumida Ward, installed a small camera with a lens measuring about one centimeter in the cafe toilet in March, Fuji TV reported. He operated the camera remotely and filmed six women, police said.

A cafe employee was cleaning the toilet and discovered the camera about 10 minutes after Natori installed it.

After his arrest on a similar charge last October, Natori admitted that he sold the video footage of at least 300 women on a pay-per-view online site, netting about 27 million yen. He was given a suspended sentence.

Police said Natori has admitted to the latest charge and quoted him as saying he had done the same thing on other occasions as well, since being given the suspended sentence.

He should have been locked up the first time.

Unemployed? The Devil finds work for idle hands!

How long was his original suspended sentence? These kinds of perverted offenses will never be stopped with suspended sentences. All these creeps with their hidden cameras and upskirt filming need to have punishments befitting the crime. Where I come from they face up to 7 years in jail. This loser is a repeat offender on already on a suspended sentence. He should be looking at a decade in the own.

Suspended sentence for commercial exploitation of peeping footage? That's crazy. He should be in prison.

".....last year for secretly filming women in the toilet of a bar,..."

and HE thought he was doing it ...in-camera.

No reason he shouldn't receive the max sentence, plus his suspended sentence. Obviously didn't learn anything from the court's previous gift.

You know what they say. 3rd times the charm.

He is not going to stop. It doesn’t matter how many times he’s been arrested. He’s found a lucrative market that he sees as low risk.

They need harsher punishments for these types of things.

Is he really unemployed? Take a look at the Sales figures 27 million Yen or $US250,000 that's good money in anyone's terms. Doesn't make him a pervert or deviant just a guy seeing an opportunity to make some money the real perverts are those that are paying to watch his films.

Sorry, but only someone interested in the area would see the opportunity in it. Normal entrepreneurs don't just suddenly get ideas like this out of nowhere.

They only found one of his cameras the first time; probably the second time too. Hope for his sake he has saved some of that cash for old age.

Wonder if he'll do it again...

If you don't know the recidivism rates then you don't know. That is the best marker any court has to run with and there is no reason to think its near 100 percent. Its probably not even 50 percent. Suspended sentences are given for a reason, and its because where possible and sensible, everyone deserves a second chance. Otherwise we have a vengeance society looking backward rather than a justice society looking forward. Its a non-violent crime. Unacceptable? Yes. Heinous? No. This one got his second chance and blew it. I bet most don't. And if most do? Even the minority deserves a second chance.

The women should sue him for some of those millions

He filmed 6 women in 10 minutes? That must be one busy toilet.

Because I am a woman, I really want to know are men really attracted to that type of thing? Is it sexy to watch us using the toilet? Watching #1 and #2 coming out, is it really sexy?

Men are attracted to all kinds of things, just like there are all kinds of people. So are some women, for that matter. Ideally they find partners who can share their interests. Otherwise it's hookers and porn.

Err, what? Something wrong with the math here, or this is the busiest toilet in Japan.

Is the toilet-cam market THAT hot?? I mean, I can see a few weirdos willing to shell out a couple bucks to see it, but 27 million yen? wow! Weird stuff turns people on, I guess.

There seems to be a lot of money to be made in lady dumps. Wonder if anyone would pay to see my fat male friend lay some serious cable?

Abslutely disgusting. No sexual offence should be given a suspended sentence.

Question. Why put Sexual Offences on a pedestal?

a couple weeks later we will see the same news title but the word "second" changed to "third"

as he will be released with no charges.

Amir Marzouk I really want to know are men really attracted to that type of thing?

I think its important to not focus too much on the use of the toilet. I don't think that is where it begins at all. Its obvious that men are attracted to the view of women's bodies, especially the parts we do not normally get to see because women go to major efforts to hide them from us on a daily basis. This attraction is so intense that men can and will get over the disgust they feel with toilet issues to finally get a peak. I am sure the customers of this type of product had women in their lives they wanted to see naked, but never or hardly ever got a chance but every time she has gone for the toilet or shower they were realizing the entire time that there she is locked in that room with her pants finally off or down. Its the creation of an obsession and recurring fantasy and it will lead to wanting to see other women that way.

I am sure its just as shocking to me that women seem to have no idea what they are doing to us and scarcely even think on how their perpetual denial of intense male desires drives men nuts in this is and a million other ways. And its also shocking to me how society itself does not even seem to consider the damage that sexual frustration does to so many people but just passes it all off as fluff.

Yes, I think you analyzed the fantasy pretty well. They don’t really want to see the toilet products, but other than that.

And, yes, sexual frustration is a major problem. You can see in the U.S. where the news outlets that happily parade hyper sexual culture are the same ones that express shock and anger over crimes resulting from sexual frustration.
