15 Comments

A 45-year-old man who attempted to use his smartphone to film up a woman’s skirt on a train on the JR Saikyo Line has been arrested after he fled the scene by jumping onto the tracks at Shinjuku Station.

According to police, the incident occurred just before 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Fuji TV reported. The suspect, Yoshimasa Nozaki, a part-time worker, allegedly tried to film up the 29-year-old woman’s skirt on the train between Ikebukuro and Shinjuku stations.

The woman noticed Nozaki’s behavior and said, “You were trying to film me, weren’t you?” When they got off the train at Shinjuku Station, the woman tried to get Nozaki to come with her to the station master's office, but he jumped from the platform onto the train tracks and ran away.

Train services were delayed for 14 minutes, JR said.

About 30 minutes later, police spotted Nozaki near Shinjuku Station and arrested him.

Police said Nozaki has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying, “I was caught doing this before and I didn't want to get arrested."

Guess his previous punishment didn't help much.

Here's a tip, don't break the law and your chance of arrest is very low.

I assume he didn't get much of a a punishment last time.

I watched this on the news this morning. He ran across several tracks, lucky he didn't get hit. Cameras in the neighborhood got a good look at his face. My granddaughter asked "Whats wrong with his eyes?" because he had a scary, bug-eyed expression.

I wonder where these guys who jump on the tracks to escape eventually come out... Seems there couldn't be too may places to go.

Are there well marked emergency exits? Do they emerge into unwatched locations? It would scare the crapola out of me to be stuck in a dark subway tunnel during service hours.

No idea why he thinks escaping through the train tracks is going to make things any better and easier for him...he'd be better off escaping through an allowed path...

there are so many of these guys jumping on to the tracks lately...it's insane...

Another sick Japanese man. The only way to stop this perverted and sick behavior is to ale the penalties severe and unforgettable.

If they made punishments here fit the crimes, there wouldn’t be enough jail space to house all the wackos. Instead, aberrant deeds are simply tolerated with a world-weary, reflexive shrug of the shoulders and resigned shoganai.

This is not good.

As a repeat offender, he should be banned from having any computer, camera or Keitai for 10 years.

Another nut job/pervert. No shortage in Japan.

How could you not escape from the vicinity of Shinjuku station after half-an-hour.. And what are the chances of spotting one man around that station?

Some people seem to think that Japan has a monopoly on these types of perversions---they are common in all countries--like it or not!

And all countries have overcrowded train transportation systems.

You know........you can get your cheap thrills on the internet instead of putting everything on the line, you nonce. If he was caught before, why is he still risking it to do such a stupid thing?
