Miniskirt Police singer nabs groping suspect on train
Yukiko Hachisuka, 23, a pin-up girl and member of the pop group Minisuka Police (short for Miniskirt Police), grabbed a man whom she says sexually molested her on a train, police said Tuesday.
According to police, Hachisuka had gotten on the Odakyu line at Shimokitazawa station after work last Friday. She told police she felt herself being groped around her rear end for 10 minutes. Just before arriving at Mukogaokayuen station, Hachisuka grabbed the groper’s wrist and held onto him until the train pulled in to the next station where she handed him over to the station staff.
Police said the suspect, identified as Yoshiyuki Tamura, 43, has admitted to the charge. He was quoted as saying, “Initially, the back of my hand just touched her rear end, but I guess I got a little too excited.”
