Man arrested for spitting on woman on Osaka street

14 Comments

Police in Osaka have arrested a 24-year-old man on suspicion of assault and property damage after he spat on a woman while she was walking in the downtown area of Kita Ward.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 6:10 p.m. on Nov 5 as the woman, in her 20s, walked along the street near Hankyu Osaka-Umeda Station, Kyodo News reported. The man, who was arrested on Wednesday, has admitted to the allegation, police said.

According to the warrant, the man, whose name hasn’t been released, walked behind the woman and spat on her hair and skirt, then hurried away. About 45 minutes later, a man spit on a teenage girl in the same area.

Both female victims reported the incidents to a nearby police box. An analysis of surveillance camera footage of the two incidents showed the same man.

Police said there have been several similar incidents involving women in the area since Nov 5 and believe the same man be responsible.

Another sociopath who needs to be locked away from civilized society - for good. Probably in a nut house.

Well, I really can't fathom what is wrong with this ghastly chap. Why would anyone want to do these things? S it from porn addiction, has he gone bonkers or is he being controlled by demonic forces.

And just why hasn't his name been released? Nor his age? If he's under age, the report would likely say so. Ripe for speculation.

Fighto!: "Another sociopath who needs to be locked away from civilized society - for good. Probably in a nut house."

Locked away "for good", just for spitting? I see people spitting in Japan all the time, especially around my local station (even though many Japanese have told me only Chinese spit on the street). This guy needs to undergo a mental evaluation for sure, and compensate the victims of what he has done, and possibly do time if he can't, but locked up for good? No. Doesn't fit the crime one bit.

How about lick-shining a fellow prisoner's shoes, in a prison cell of course.

Please tell us more. I don’t know anything about pornography, but you, being more knowledgeable, can surely shed some light on the porn and spitting-on-random strangers connection.
