According to police, the 56-year-old officer is an instructor at a police academy in Sakai, and he was on a temporary assignment to a police station. Fuji TV reported that the incident took place on a train on the JR Kanjo (Loop) line. The woman said that the officer touched her behind for several minutes. The woman reported the incident to station staff who detained the suspect.
A spokesman for the Osaka prefectural police quoted the officer as saying he was drunk at the time and couldn't remember anything but that he had apologized to the woman.© Japan Today
