Police in Tokyo said Thursday they have arrested a 24-year-old man who works at a hospital, on suspicion of taking voyeuristic images of a woman’s breasts while she was having an electrocardiogram.
Police said Terumasa Maruyama, who was arrested on Wednesday, has admitted to the allegation and quoted him as saying he couldn’t control his sexual desire, Kyodo News reported.
According to police, the incident occurred at Hakujikai Memorial General Hospital in Adachi Ward at around 1 p.m. on July 14. Maruyama, who works in the radiography department, was giving the woman in her 20s an electrocardiogram, with her face covered by a towel. During the procedure, he used his smartphone to film her breasts. Police said the woman was unaware of what Maruyama was doing.
However, on Aug 15, Maruyama filmed another woman in her 20s during an electrocardiogram but the woman saw him with the smartphone in his hand and she consulted with hospital officials.
The hospital contacted police. Police subsequently questioned Maruyama and confiscated his smartphone on which they found videos of several different women whom he had filmed during electrocardiograms.© Japan Today
