Man arrested over threatening emails to actress Yuri Nakae


Police in Tokyo said Friday they have arrested a 42-year-old newspaper deliveryman from Izumo, Shimane Prefecture on suspicion of sending threatening messages to actress and author Yuri Nakae via an email address on her fan website.

According to police, the suspect – who was arrested on April 29 -- has admitted to sending two email messages to Nakae, 43, in Tokyo last December and in January this year, but denied there was anything threatening in them. One of the messages reportedly said “Die” beside a photo of Nakae, while another contained lewd remarks aimed at her, Sankei Shimbun reported.

Police said Nakae, who consulted with them in January, told them she did not know the man.

I am glad the police did something quickly. It usual takes many e-mails plus the stalker approaching the victim before something is done.

Not sure how quickly they handled this since she contacted them in January and he was only arrested April 29th.

Investigations, etc take time to make sure they got the right person.

Glad they acted and arrested him.

I feel there is an element of Police Dept. PR about this story.
