Police in Tokyo have arrested a 24-year-old unemployed man for spraying graffiti on several buildings near Yotsuya Station.
According to police, Naoki Hayashi was arrested for vandalism last November. TV Asahi reported that Hayashi is suspected of spraying graffiti, such as large characters and figures nearly two meters high and three meters long, on at least 10 buildings in Chiyoda Ward.
Hayashi was quoted by police as saying he had been in a very special mood after having consumed a lot of alcohol, and that he had liked some designs he had looked up online, so he decided to copy them by spraying graffiti on buildings.
Police said they are also questioning Hayashi about similar acts of vandalism in May 2013, as well as two accomplices seen in street surveillance camera footage.© Japan Today
