Police in Saitama City said Sunday they have arrested a 36-year-old newspaper deliveryman for making death threats against a TV presenter.
According to police, the suspect, identified as Akira Kamijo, posted six death threats against Takako Kato, 25, in a readers' column on the NTV website, between Sept 25 and Oct 5. The messages, sent from his smartphone, included threats such as "Die" and "I'm going to kill you on the weekend," TV Asahi reported.
Kamijo was quoted by police he didn't like the immoral way that Kato dressed while she was on air. "Her skirts were always too short," he said.
Prior to his arrest, Kamijo worked as a newspaper deliveryman for the Asahi Shimbun.
