Man arrested for sexually molesting woman as she walks home

21 Comments

Police in Tokyo have arrested a 21-year-old man on suspicion of sexually molesting a woman in her 20s as she walked home one night in March.

According to police, Kohei Majima, a company employee, has admitted to the charge, and said he was drunk at the time, Sankei Shimbun reported. Police quoted Majima as saying the woman was his type.

The incident occurred late at night in Shinagawa Ward. The woman told police that a man whom she didn’t know approached her and asked if she was on her way home. He then suddenly grabbed her and started groping her buttocks. The woman, who had her cell phone in her hand, yelled and said she would call the police, at which point the man fled.

Police said Majima was identified after an analysis of street surveillance camera footage.

It's not worth it

This seems to happen alarmingly often.

Says who? This is Japan. There’s a 99% chance that he will be not be prosecuted and zero chance he will face any significant punishment. Even repeat offenders don’t get much punishments.

the woman was his type so he groped her! Bloody man children!

blahblah222 doesn't know what s/he is talking about...The man is sure to be fired and disgraced. Being drunk is, of course, no excuse. There is surely far less public intoxication than there once was, and toleration of gross behaviour towards women has likewise declined dramatically. No country offers a utopia, but one should feel fortunate to be here.

The golden standard "I was drunk, I don't remember"

"Police said Majima was identified after an analysis of street surveillance camera footage."

Wait, it was easy to see him as the guy walking normal right? Not the version he gave police " said he was drunk at the time, Sankei Shimbun reported. Police quoted Majima as saying the woman was his type."

If he was drunk how could he even know she was his type?

He then suddenly grabbed her and started groping her buttocks.

Well this is surprising as he is in the minority. Most of these perverts seem to grab the breasts.

Well perhaps she had no breasts to speak of. Either way, the actions of a man-child w/ no life.

Another day, another sex offender. Why do some men have such an overwhelming amount of entitlement? But he was drunk and he fancied her so he’ll get a slap on the wrist and sent back into society where he can assault more women.

Just imagine what he would have done is she was't his type!?

I hate to think about it.

When I used to drink excessively (Don’t even drink at all, any more) I didn’t feel as though I needed to go out and sexually assault a woman...pathetic excuse of a man (men) who do.

Good thing she had her phone in her hand and he ran away, dread to think what might have happened if she didn't

Women need an equalizer, use pepper spray. The more that get sprayed and get the media attention, the more these drunken jerks will think before they leap.

If he was drunk how could he even know she was his type?

And if she was his type, why did he run away afer she called the cops? Why didn't he try to talk with her, play nice?

And butt-grabbing is an ill-mannered way to introduce yourself or say hello. Didn't his mama tell him better than that? Cowardly JERK!

Asking her out for a DRINK usually works...better than -ss grabbing, anyway.

Given the widespread misogynistic antipathy towards women, the happily independent ones in

particular, it’s little wonder that these things happen. And that the punishments are usually of the

order of the feather duster. “We forgive you this time (suspended sentence), but please don’t do

it again, pretty please, with sugar on top."

Plenty of establishments will lots of ladies, especially now with Corona job losses, waiting for a mans custom. What a cheap skate and that is a form of assault as far as I am concerned. Be a real man and either get a girlfriend or pay your 150 USD equivalent

If this guy tried to do this to some of the high ranked ladies at my judo club, he would be badly injured right now. I wish all females had self defence abilities. Judo, boxing, Taekwondo whatever.....
