Police have arrested a 35-year-old man on suspicion of creating a public nuisance and for obstructing police in the performance of their duty after he resisted arrest following a report that he was voyeuristically filming a woman on a bullet train.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 11:30 p.m. Sunday aboard a bullet train between Hakata and Kokura stations in Fukuoka Prefecture. A passenger observed the man, Yusuke Onaka, filming a woman with his smartphone, and called 110.
When the train arrived at Kokura Station, three police officers started questioning Onaka on the platform. Suddenly, he jumped onto the tracks and tried to run away. Police gave chase and during a scuffle, Onaka bit one of them before being subdued.
Police said Onaka, who is from Kita-Kyushu, told them he had been drinking heavily at Hakata before he boarded the train.© Japan Today
