35 Comments

Police in Isehara, Kanagawa Prefecture, have arrested an elementary school vice principal on suspicion of assault and committing a lewd act after he smeared bodily fluid on a 12-year-old girl inside a train.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 5 p.m. on Sept 16 between Shimokitazawa and Noborito stations on the Odakyu Line, Fuji TV reported. Police said Masanori Takei, vice principal of Isehara Municipal Sakuradai Elementary School, stood behind the girl and smeared the unspecified fluid on her right hand and arm.

Police said the train was packed with commuters at the time. The girl was crying when she got off the train and sought help from station staff.

Police said Takei, who was arrested on Monday, emerged as a potential suspect after they reviewed station surveillance camera footage of passengers getting off the train.

On Tuesday, Isehara Municipal Sakuradai Elementary School released a public apology stating, “We wish to apologize to our children, parents and the community.”

Does Japan have create a national pedophile list? If not, they should create one ASAP so these scums would not be working with children ever again

The fact is the widespread accessibility at the click of a mouse to viewing all manner of perversions to anyone with a wi-fi-enabled device has never existed at this level at any point in history, so it should be no surprise that we are seeing such acts being committed so regularly.

I do not know if there is direct connection, but you absolutely correc that the current situation where unlimited supply of all sorts pervert material is just a click away in any house of for that matter any smartphone is a novel situation. It is kind of a grand social experiment, and we do not know it will play out.

@nippnick, how did they know it was bodily fluids? was it tested, did he say what it was? how on earth did he think that he was going to get away with this blatant act on a train???

i don't understand this story. Smeared bodily fluid o. the little girl? Does it mean he ejaculated in a packed train on her? That's beyond crazy. And he is a vice principal dealing with little girls all the time

No mention about whether he will be fired or not. I guess the school district is fine keeping him as an educator

Highly unlikely. He'll have to resign at the least. For comparison, a senior local education chief was forced to resign when he accidentally called an ex-pupil "Omae, albeit at a sensitive time.

(I actually knew said teacher years ago - utterly good natured and kindly fellow).

BW-hair gel is not a body fluid.

My idea of a fair sentence would involve letting the girls father have some "private time" with the culprit while the police head down to the vending machines.

I would have thought that the fluids would have been tested in the lab, if they weren't, why not? and we should know exactly what the result was, we all know what those fluids might be, buy lets not speculate. if its what we all think it might be, we shouldn't the news headline read "former vice principle" ?

IF, it was hair gel, its not as serious, but either way spreading/wiping anything on any child is a big no no.

Has this creep been made to pay for cleaning here school ware? I wonder how much grief she has had a school from other pupils? kids can be very nasty, even if its down to name calling or xxxx,

Embarrassing.

So many creepy men here.

The incidence of reported abuse in Japan is much, much lower than in the USA.

There, fixed it for you.

Japan just dont report anything, and victims are often too scared to report, and cover-ups are more common

He needs to get a lengthy incarceration period. 12 year old crying? This guy is a vice-principal? Wow. Make the sentence long enough that he is the one doing the crying.

He also must not work very hard, if he was an hour away from his school by 5pm on a Wednesday school day.

Not that I defend the current flood of porn on the net, but the fact is perversions existed long before porn.

Yes you are correct in pointing that out.

However, the huge presence of porn in the lives of Japanese men exacerbates and overstimulates them to the point where they begin to lose touch with reason and basic regard for women/young girls, similar to say how an alcoholic or drug addict needs to drink/intake ever larger quantities to satisfy his urge...porn is in fact a drug in the sense that people get hooked on it, lose their sense of reason, and then must find some way to release the craving for actual gratification which is built up.

This type of story needs to be widely publicized overseas, that way japan might wake up

As long as porn (the elephant in the room) continues to be ignored, these perversions will continue to flourish and proliferate.

That pervert is a school principal??

He should never be allowed to have that job again.

gokai_wo_maneku - Let me just ask: the "bodily fluid" is semen?

Well, it wasn’t a booger or armpit sweat. What do you reckon?

That's just not right. Some things an apology can not fix. Adults' that prey on children are the lowest form of scum on the Earth. And I would like to write about what I would like to do to scum sack of a human. But I would offend some readers and most certainly have my comment removed.

Apologized? He should be fired and his pension donated to the girl and her family. This creep should never be allowed around children again.

This is a major problem, sending kids into that mess with those weirdos lurking.

What is body fluid? If it is what i think it is, that is a form of child rape. 10 years.

I really don't understand the purpose of smearing body fluid on a teenage Girl?

Not even teenage Monty. she's 12. Hope the scumbag goes away for a long time. menace to society..

NHK BS has a program on now about young women who've suffered sexual assault. Some terrible stories about lasting psychological damage. Some of the women were abused by their own school teachers.

Hehe.  "The unspecified fluid".  A small percentage of teachers and others who work with kids certainly seem to do so for all the wrong reasons.....

Another day, another sex offender. Japan needs a register to stop these predators gaining access to children and vulnerable adults.

“We wish to apologize to our children, parents and the community.”

sounds familiar....

maybe they should wish us a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year too.

Do elementary schools still have parents or faculty welcoming the kids to school in the morning.

Should be interesting when a parent comes up and asks, are you the creep that smeared liquids on the 12 year old girl?

Interesting note. The accusation happened on Sept. 16, almost 2 moths ago. Are you telling me the VP has been working all this time without repercussions? What took them so long to check out surveillance footage?

Why are these people doing that? Is this a kind of perversion?

These kind of news are often here in Japan.
