The incident occurred at around 4:30 p.m. Friday in Iburi, Hokkaido Broadcasting Corp reported. Police said the man, of no fixed address, got into the woman’s house by breaking the living room window.

Earlier Friday, the woman, who is in her 40s, filed a complaint with police, in which she said a man she used to date had been stalking her. As she arrived home, a neighbor told her that her living room window had been smashed, so the woman called police.

Police arrived and found the man in the house and arrested him on the spot.

Get a job, get a life.

Makes one wonder if his attraction to her was amorous or financial support.

Police said the man, of no fixed address, got into the woman’s house by breaking the living room window.

So she had been dating a homeless guy?

Yes. Two or three people behaving badly in a prefecture of 5 million people -- definitely "a lot."

Three stories involving three bad actors in a prefecture of 5 million people.

We're drinking the same things as everyone else, and most of us are just fine.

Actually there’s been almost daily reports of beastly crimes happening from there lately. I pay a lot of attention because my dear partner comes from Sapporo. Last week, people were stabbed at a Seicomart in Kita ward, my partners mummy lives in Higashi, it could of been her, it’s pretty close.

According to the article, he has no fixed address currently. He could have had one at that time. It doesn't say how long ago it was.

Or, perhaps, she broke it off when she found out he didn't have a job or place to live.

Sounds like a real winner.

I hope this is taken seriously by the police. We have seen too many times how these stalking cases end with murder.

Breaking and entering doesn't usually get a significant prison sentence.
