A 59-year-old junior high school principal has been arrested for breaking into a woman's apartment in Tokyo's Adachi Ward, police said Thursday.
Police identified the suspect as Koji Kijima, principal of Komagata Junior High School in Taito Ward. Fuji TV reported that he is accused of following the woman, who is in her 20s, to her home from a nearby station at around 1 a.m. on Wednesday. As soon as the woman entered her apartment, Kijima opened the door before she had a chance to lock it.
The woman screamed and a passerby came to the apartment entrance and subdued Kijima. The woman said she had never met Kijima before.
Kijima was quoted by police as saying he was drunk and that he followed the woman from the station because she was his type.
