Osaka man arrested for smearing poo on teen’s backpack

By SoraNews

At about 8:40 p.m. on July 29, a 17-year-old young woman was walking through the streets of Suita City, Osaka Prefecture, when she began to notice an odd and horrible smell. After walking some more it began to feel as if the smell was following her, so she stopped and checked the backpack she was wearing.

To her horror there were streaks of what appeared to be human feces smeared on it, so she went straight to the police.

It hasn’t been reported exactly how the authorities managed to track the offender down, but about a month later they arrested a 24-year-old man who lives in Osaka City for assault and damage to property. During the arrest, police found a capped 500-milliliter plastic bottle with the suspect’s own excrement inside as well as a small tube.

The suspect had reportedly gone out during a work break at an assisted living facility and committed the crime.

According to the investigation, the man said he was dealing with stress from his job as well as a divorce the year before, to which he attributed a general ill-will toward women.

Readers of the news were having particular trouble grasping the cryptic connection between the suspect’s motive and very specific actions.

“I don’t get how that relieves stress.”

“I think I know what might have led to his divorce.”

“Big man, taking his anger out on teenage girls.”

“How do you come up with this idea just because you hate women?”

“I’m still trying to figure out how the tube works.”

“That’s just heinous.”

“I’m gagging just imagining what that must have been like.”

“How did he get it in the bottle?”

That last question seems crucial in trying to figure out the mind of this criminal. The amount of forethought that had to go into preparing the bottle makes it appear to be a premeditated act, done by a man driven to smear poo on people’s bags using his own particular woes as an excuse.

The fact that he also still had the bottle, or possibly even a different bottle, weeks after the incident he was arrested for suggests that it probably wasn’t an isolated incident either.

A message in a bottle? A cry for help?

I’d be more concerned about this.

The only leads were a bunch of smeared excretion on a bag, and they end up finding the freak?

What did they do, grab a bunch of “suspects” and force them to drop a deuce while the genius cops selected the one that smelt or felt the most appropriate?

Something seems rank about all of this.

Hopefully this joker will enjoy playing with his poop in a bottle in a cell.

That's why I love Japan. It will certainly be one of the "safest" places in the world but ... Heeii! it never stop to surprise you.

Look, its not stress that's driving someone to crap in a bottle then spray it on a high school age girl.

Its sexual deviancy.

Stress is the # 1 cause of all the crazy things that are happening around, it a trend now , blame every little act of stupidity on stress and you may get away with it.

Awa no Gaijin...

The word poo is inappropriate , insensitive and vulgar.

Agreed, I think "plop plops" would have been more appropriate!

Loathsome lowlife. I’d say rub his nose in it like you do a puppy, but he probably does that himself anyway.

gone out during a work break at an assisted living facility 

Do they fill it up there at that strange facility? Would explain that he wants others to participate a bit too. lol

The guy is a loser and takes out his failings on women. What a POS!

He could have gone to Amazon online and bought Liquid Ass harmless but very effective bad smelling prank spray. It is so bad. Especially if there is back wind and it blows on yourself. For mature males only.

Another story that you wished you just hadn't clicked on! People have a variety of ways of dealing with stress ay? This is next-level stuff though ...

I hope Japanese men learn to treat women with more respect.

This kind of crap is a stain on society. ;)

These freaks are getting sicker and sicker by the day!

This would have been a case of me spending 23 days in custody because if I knew who did it, we would have come to fisticuffs.

"Stress" my rear end!

No wonder he's divorced lol!

Just as well she never made it indoors where it would’ve really hit the fan.

The thing that get’s me is with a little bit of looking he could have found someone who would have paid him to role play this or he could have paid someone to help role play this… sloppy execution.

People are losing their marbles over the prolonged lockdown.

Oh come on, you're not new to Japan ....

So, this guy finds it calming to collect his own feces, ...

Perhaps not his own; look where he works. Either way, utterly sick.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Filthy, degenerate, woman-hating scum.

No wonder his wife divorced him. If he has children, I really hope he is never allowed to see them ever again.

-1 ( +7 / -8 )

He was tracked down after a tip off from a stool pigeon

18 ( +20 / -2 )

So, this guy finds it calming to collect his own feces, put it in a tube, carry it around on him and keep it at work with him all day, then find children to spread it on? And his wife left him??

Is "Osaka man" the new "Florida man"?

a 17-year-old young woman

Funny how when it's a sex crime on this site 17 year old girls are listed as "girls" but in articles like this they're referred to as "young women."
