TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Tuesday announced the arrest of a 27-year-old Nigerian national for damaging the property of a woman in Minato Ward with his bodily fluid, reports TBS News (Nov. 26).
On August 7 of last year, the suspect is alleged to have approached the woman, 26, from behind in the street, exposed the lower half of his body and smeared bodily fluids on her dress as she returned to her home in the Roppongi entertainment district.
A DNA test of the fluid left on the dress matched that of the suspect, who has reportedly admitted to the allegations.
According to police, five similar incidents have taken place in the same general area over the last three years. Investigators are looking into whether the suspect could also be responsible for these other crimes.
