A 25-year-old police officer has been arrested on suspicion of disturbing the public peace after he allegedly groped a woman on a train in Tokyo, police said Tuesday.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 9 p.m. Sunday on a train on the Odakyu Line between Tsurukawa and Shin-Yurigaoka stations. Sankei Shimbun reported that the officer, Kai Hayato, who lives in Hachioji, put his hand up the dress of a 29-year-old woman seated next to him.

The woman yelled at Hayato who was apprehended by station staff at Shin-Yurigaoka Station. Police quoted Hayato as saying he can’t remember the incident because he was drunk at the time.
