Police in Izumiotsu City, Osaka Prefecture, said Friday they are looking for a man who attacked a junior high schoolgirl and cut off her ponytail.

Police said the incident occurred as the girl was walking to school at around 6:30 a.m. on Thursday.

TV Asahi reported that the girl told police the man, whom she did not know, called out to her from behind to wait a minute. The man grabbed her and cut about 20 cm of her ponytail before running away with the stolen locks.

The man is said to be in his 30s, approximately 180 cm tall, has a round plump face, and was wearing a black knitted cap and white face mask at the time of the assault.

why would you cut off a girls pony tail? is it a power thing? (like sumo top knot) or is he just bald? the poor girl must be terrified.

Poor girl, she must be horribly traumatised. He won't stop, he'll keep doing it until he's caught.

This is a nature of OKASHI (abnormal) Japanese youths and middle aged people in Japan. According to my experience, many Japanese people are mentally abnormal and immatured. Many youths and middle aged Japanese like women`s smell than actul sex. This is mental sickness.
