A policeman has been arrested for allegedly flashing his genitals at a schoolgirl. Reports say the 37-year-old man was dressed in a sailor-style schoolgirl uniform at the time of the offense.
The officer, who has been named as Kazuya Tsukada, is an assistant inspector with the traffic division. He is believed to have entered an apartment building in Musashino and got into the elevator at the same time as a 16-year-old schoolgirl on March 11 at around 7 p.m., TV Asahi reported. As he got out of the elevator, Tsukada reportedly turned around and said, “Look at this” and flashed his genitals at the girl.
According to police, a string of similar incidents in the area prompted a search for the man responsible. Tsukada was eventually spotted in Musashisakai Station in schoolgirl uniform and was detained by station guards, TV Asahi reported.
During questioning, Tsukada was quoted as saying he had done the same thing few times.
