Police in Dazaifu, Fukuoka, said Friday they have arrested a 34-year-old man on suspicion of theft after he was seen rummaging through the mailbox of an empty house on July 1.

The man, who was wearing wearing a Playboy bunny girl costume when he was seen at the house, is also believed to be the same man seen wearing a Spider-Man costume and loitering outside empty houses earlier this year, Sankei Shimbun reported.

According to police, a woman witnessed the man looking through the mailbox of an unoccupied house at around 12:30 p.m. on July 1. She called a nearby police koban and said a strange man wearing black fishnet tights and high heels was loitering outside the house. When the "bunny girl" spotted the woman, he fled in a car.

Police identified the suspect, Tetsuya Fujisawa, from his car license plate; however, he has denied the charge and said he has no idea what they are talking about.

Police said that in 2009, Fujisawa was arrested for attempting to trespass into an empty house, wearing a “Spider-Man 3” costume,in Iizuka, Fukuoka Prefecture.

Since March, police said they have been a number of reports of a man dressed as Spider-Man acting suspiciously in Dazaifu.

At least from this article I can't actually see that any crime has been committed. The police have a "suspicion of theft" yet he was just seen rummaging through a mailbox of an empty house. Presumably just junk mail. Did he actually take anything? And what is "attempting to trespass"? He either did or didn't. Yet police seem to have nabbed him for it before.

Some years ago, we had a flasher in my neighborhood who wore a rabbit costume when he did his thing.

" I don't know what y'all talking about" funniest line ever after a blatant crime.

I get warning flyers from the police asking people to make sure they get their mail daily because burglars see a full mailbox as meaning nobody is home.

Guys, he probably got lost trying to find the Playboy mansion.
