16 Comments

Police in Uenohara, Yamanashi Prefecture, have arrested a 33-year-old man on suspicion of voyeurism after he used his smartphone to film up a 19-year-old woman’s skirt.

Police said Hayato Akagi, a dispatch worker from Showa in Yamanashi Prefecture, is accused of filming up the woman’s skirt at a shopping center at around 8:35 a.m. on Sunday, local media reported. The woman, who is from Tokyo, was at the shopping center with her family.

One of her family members saw what was going on and called police. 

Police said Akagi has admitted to the allegation and are examining his camera for videos of other woman whom he may have filmed surreptitiously.

I don't think I've ever seen a shopping center open at 8:30 on a Sunday in Japan, particularly in a place like Yamanashi.

Sick evil doer with low morals. This type of immoral,behaviour can lead to more serious crimes such as sexual assault, stalking, visiting prototypes and rape. Luckily he was caught before he could carry on his reign of terror.

What kind of evil monster doesn't wait until a product's design is finalized before visiting?

A shopping center is not a public place and they often have signs prohibiting photography. It's a business place and private property.

Upskirt photography is banned by local ordinances.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Actually I have seen plenty.

In many non large cities like Tokyo!

Many places like Yamanashi, Ibaraki, Gumma, etc .. they often open certain sections as early as 7:30 especially during the summer.

Local vegetable and fruit farmers bring their produce early morning for sale.

The entire store/shopping centre may not be open but the farmers market parts are!

The usual daily upskirt shot in japan.

A daily occurrence.

Our local stores are 8 am to 11 pm and one large Holow store is 24/7.

Not just there. Down here in Okinawa, until earlier this year, AEON Department stores opened their grocery departments at 0700. Now they open at 0800. The rest of the mall does not open until 1000.

So, the "shopping center" comment was partially correct, if it was a place like one of those. It's just too much trouble for writers here to be specific and provide accurate details that make sense.

The guy of the day.

One caught, hundreds to go.

It would be journalism work to tell what is the punishment to be expected in such article, if ever it could be a deterrent to such very crime.

Is it voyeurism? It should be a much more serious offense. Voyeurism is looking through a window. Having a phone stuck up a girl’s bum is an assault.

What planet is this from? I guess he may have gone on to mass murder, and terrorism. I can't imagine. Maybe we should gouge men's eyes out for looking, lest it progresses to something like. talking to a woman, ...I mean...who knows where it could lead to. I think you're making massive jumps in assumptions. I think this imho ranks on the lower levels of "EVIL". Although i can't imagine what the higher levels of "EVIL" might be... VERY EVIL.
