SAITAMA (TR) – Saitama Prefectural Police have arrested a 52-year-old male teacher at a middle school in Kasukabe City for allegedly infiltrating into a girl’s changing room for the taking of illicit films, TBS News (Sept. 10).
Between the end of last month and September 8, Nobuyuki Hataya, a resident of Hasuda City, allegedly entered the room, which is for students using a pool, and installed a cardboard box outfitted with a hole and containing a smartphone.
The phone was discovered by a female teacher on September 8. Hataya subsequently confessed to ownership of the device. “I want to protect the school,” he reportedly said before using a hammer to smash it.
Hataya, who has been charged with trespassing, admits to the allegations. “(I did it) for the purpose of taking tosatsu images of the school girls,” the suspect is quoted in referring to voyeur footage.
