Sometimes form follows art. Some time ago there was a famous V-Cinema film about monkey business behind bars titled “Female Prisoner #701 Scorpion.” This time, reports Shukan Jitsuwa (Oct. 21), something occurred in an Osaka detention facility that was remarkably similar to the plot of the film.
On September 29, senior police inspector Yasuyuki Takagi, age 49, was placed under arrest. Takagi had been attached to the administration section of the detention facility at Makikata City in east Osaka Prefecture.
According to the charges, Takagi had engaged in sexual relations on the morning of September 10, 2009, with a woman who had been confined to the facility for stimulant drug abuse.
“Takagi was working the night shift,” relates a reporter from the local newspaper. “He was invited by the woman to engage in sex. It seems she sucked him off.
“The case became known when the woman was detained on a similar charge in July of this year at a hotel in Neyagawa City,” the reporter continues. “‘Takagi had been kind to me, so I thought I’d reciprocate,’ she told her captors. ‘We waited until the guard was away and then embraced.'”
A police source explains how the dirty deed could have been pulled off.
“Usually guards don’t carry keys to the cells,” he says. “It’s believed that Takagi got his hands on a special key that can only be used to open a cell in the case of an emergency. If that’s true, then even if he was invited by the woman it’s pretty obvious that he was rarin’ to go himself as well.”
Takagi has so far maintained his innocence. But the police have apparently obtained testimony from a female detained in a neighboring cell that night, who recalled she “heard the sound of the cell being opened.”
The aforementioned reporter says that while the details of Takagi’s partner in crime have not been released, she appears to be a masseuse from China. As she was a repeat drug abuser, this raises the possibility that she intentionally set Takagi up.
According to a source in the Osaka police department, women undergoing interrogation often try to distract the officers, such as by opening the top buttons of their blouse or by pretending to masturbate while in their detention cells. (K.S.)
