An assistant police inspector in Tottori Prefecture has been arrested for trespassing on the balcony of a woman's apartment.
According to police, the assistant inspector has been named as 40-year-old Masaki Anyoji, a member of the Tottori prefectural police. TBS quoted a police spokesman as saying an investigation was launched after an intruder was seen jumping from a second floor balcony of an apartment belonging to a woman in her 30s at around 2 a.m. on July 15. The intruder fell to the ground roughly 5 meters below and is thought to have been injured.
Investigators checked clinics and hospitals for injuries among men fitting the description and found that Anyoji had been admitted to hospital shortly after the incident, having fractured his lumbar vertebrae. Police questioned Anyoji over his whereabouts at the time of the incident and later arrested him, TBS said.
Anyoji so far denies the charge and claims to have injured his back falling down the stairs at his home, police said.© Japan Today
