At 12:20 a.m. on Friday, Kazunari Kuwakubo is alleged to have discharged bodily fluid onto the skirt of a 28-year-old female passenger sleeping in a seat next to him on the JR Joban Line as it traveled between Abiko and Tennodai stations.
Kuwakubo, who has been charged with committing an indecent act, admits to the allegations, telling police that he “was turned on.”
According to police, Kuwakubo boarded the train at the same station as the victim and sat down beside her. Once the number of passengers gradually decreased, he unzipped his pants and reached for his genital area in committing the act.
Upon the train’s arrival at Tennodai Station, the woman awoke and discovered the crime. She then reported the suspect to JR personnel.
