Police in Nagoya said Wednesday they have arrested an unemployed 48-year-old man on suspicion of assault after he came up behind on a woman standing on a train platform and snipped off some of her hair with a pair of scissors.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, local media reported. The woman was waiting on the platform at Meitetsu Nagoya Station when the suspect, Tomomi Matsunaga, approached her from behind and snipped off several centimeters of her hair with a small pair of scissors.

A station employee grabbed Matsunaga, who is from Konan in Aichi Prefecture, and held him until police arrived. The woman was not injured.

Police said Matsunaga has admitted to the charge but has so far given no motive.

Police said Matsunaga has admitted to the charge but has so far given no motive.

"I was stressed about being unemployed, and was being nagged by my parents at home, so I wanted to let off some steam by cutting off some hair from a random woman. I admit I have done this at least 100 times before."

There you go, the police charge-sheet is now ready to by signed!

@bjohnson23, the thing is Japanese generally dont export hair like in India and other SE Asian countries yet. The hair hats in the US are buying Indian, Bangladesh, and Nepalese etc.

"an unemployed 48-year-old man came up behind on a woman standing on a train platform and snipped off some of her hair with a pair of scissors."

In the old 1960s movie series one step beyond, titled the "clown" had a similar related scene. Seems like these "manga creeps" are reruns of old US movies, i.e. twilight zone. night gallery, outer limits etc.
