Man arrested for stealing high school baseball uniform and using it for lewd act

27 Comments

Police in Kuki, Saitama Prefecture, have arrested a 52-year-old man on suspicion of stealing a high school baseball uniform and committing a lewd act while wearing it.

According to police, Tetsuya Ikeuchi, a company employee, stole the uniform from a school baseball ground in 2018, Sankei Shimbun reported. In July this year, Ikeuchi was arrested for exposing his lower body to a male high school student while he was wearing the stolen baseball uniform. Officers later confiscated 20 additional uniforms from his home, which led to an investigation of his activities.

Police quoted Ikeuchi as saying: “I wanted to use the uniform to do something vulgar in public.”

Police quoted Ikeuchi as saying: “I wanted to use the uniform to do something vulgar in public.”

Pretty amazed at his matter-of-fact honesty...

A shrink might conclude that since uniforms have long been fetishized in Japanese society, Ikeuchi's sartorial transgression could have been driven by an uncontrollable urge to thumb a nose at authority as well as an expression of his unmanageable sexual frustration (a much under-reported malaise in Japan's libido-challenged, workaholic culture).

Had he worn a robber's uniform he could have told the police that he had just come into money.

That is an honest man.

How do you even "expose" yourself to a person of the same sex? Everyone from children to grandpas share the same gender dressing and bathing venues.

You know. Just when you think you've seen and heard everything in Japan, things like this happen. I really don't understand this behavior (along with other kinds of weird behavior) here. Does anyone understand? What kinds of lewd acts in a baseball uniform?

Whatever floats your boat, I guess…(?)

“*Swing and a miss” *? - Now, it’s back to the dugout and hopefully, sent down to the ‘farm’ league.

He swung the bat hard and struck out, time to put the balls away.

I frequently think the same Aly.... but the words often sound stilted to me, so I also wonder if they are fed their 'lines'.

Gonna need a pinch hitter now.

The rules say the bat has to be a certain length and girth. Yerr out (of your mind)!

Such honesty.... I hope they burn the uniforms. Preferably in front of him so he can literally watch his fantasies go up in smoke.

He openly admits it. Nonetheless, flashing is flashing. It has a lot to do with fear and shock, this guy is warped and sick.
