A police sergeant was arrested on Tuesday under the Osaka prefectural nuisance prevention ordinance on charges of making illegal up-skirt videos. Yasunori Hosokawa, 44, is suspected of using his mobile phone to film up the skirt of a female university student, 18, who was riding the escalator in front of him at Osaka's Hankyu Umeda Station at around 2:35 p.m. on Tuesday.
According to police, Hosokawa was on his day off, and took in a movie before heading home. A police officer on patrol spotted him filming up the girl's skirt. Hosakawa has admitted to the charge, and was quoted as saying: "When I saw her in that miniskirt, I just gave in to temptation."© News reports
