9 Comments

Police in Hadano, Kanagawa Prefecture, have arrested a 28-year-old painter on suspicion of sexually molesting a woman in her home last September.

According to police, Yuji Saito followed the 19-year-old university student home and forced his way into the apartment behind her as she opened the door, Sankei Shimbun reported. The woman told police that he groped her breasts but left after she fought him off.

Police said Saito — who lives in Odawara — was identified through street surveillance camera footage. He has denied the charge and was quoted by police as saying he doesn’t remember anything about the incident.

Police said there have been a number of similar assaults in the same area since last September and police are questioning Saito about those cases, as well.

No surprise he pulled the I don't remember card. Steve Martin did a comedy bit about the same thing years ago asking "How many times do we get our selves into trouble because we don't say I forgot?" "Your honor I forgot armed robbery was illegal" "okay you are free to go"

Unless there was a special occasion, I doubt many people can remember what they did on a particular day 9 months ago. I think anyone would say the same thing.

But but if you broke into a woman's apartment and molested her you wouldn't forget that

I'm sure committing a crime stays on the brain.

I'm sure there are dozens of other creeps who think it's ok to do this.

If you assume he's guilty, probably. But if the guy made a habit of this behavior, he might not remember each one - especially one like this that seems to have ended early for him.
