Police in Takasaki, Gunma Prefecture, said Monday that an elementary school principal has been arrested for taking photos in a women's toilet at the school.
Police said Nobuyoshi Aisawa, 56, the principal of Orui Elementary School, was arrested after it was discovered that on June 5, he had sneaked into the toilet and taken photographs of a female faculty member in her 20s on his smartphone, TBS reported.
Police said the woman noticed a man but could not see his face, and cried out, prompting other staff members to come running. During the commotion, one faculty member passed Aisawa on a nearby stairwell, and noticed that he had been acting rather strange, TBS reported.
