OSAKA (TR) – A 50-year-old man was arrested here on Wednesday for allegedly shoving a smartphone up a woman’s skirt, police said, following his earlier indictment for taking upskirt footage of women.
Tetsuji Moriyama, 50, was arrested at the scene for allegedly committing obscene acts against a 40-year-old woman including shoving a smartphone up her skirt at a bookstore at around 7:45 p.m. on Tuesday, the Sankei Shimbun reports (September 7).
Moriyama is denying the charges, claiming to police he doesn’t “remember it very well because I was drunk.”
A male bookshop worker in his 50s noticed the woman chasing down Moriyama and pursued him before pinning him down near Umeda Station, and handed the suspect over to responding officers, Sonezaki Station police said.
Moriyama was previously indicted for attaching a camera to his sandals to take tosatsu, or voyeur, footage by filming up women’s skirts in April in Osaka.
