Police in Nagareyama, Chiba Prefecture, have arrested a 32-year-old high school teacher for voyeurism after he was caught filming up a high school girl’s skirt on a train station escalator.
The incident occurred at around 9:45 a.m. Saturday at Nagareyama-otakanomori Station on the Tsukuba Express line, Kyodo News reported. Police said Mitsuma Oku, a high school teacher from Moriya, Ibaraki Prefecture, is accused of standing behind a 16-year-old girl on the escalator and using a miniature camera attached to his ankle to film up her skirt.
