Man accused of molesting woman after following her home not prosecuted

TOKYO (TR) – Prosecutors have announced the non-prosecution of a 35-year-old man who allegedly molested a woman after following her home earlier this year, reports TBS News (June 24).

In April, Hiroyuki Ujiie, an employee at an IT company, allegedly trespassed into the residence of the woman and forcibly fondled her lower body.

Upon his arrest on suspicion of indecent assault earlier this month, Ujiie admitted to the allegations. “I got turned on,” the suspect was quoted by the Ogikubo Police Station.

On Tuesday, prosecutors with the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor’s Office announced the non-prosecution of Ujiie. No reason for the non-prosecution was given.

Prior to the incident, Ujiie spent about two hours in the Kabukicho red-light district of Shinjuku Ward.

After spotting the woman, he followed her from JR Shinjuku Station to her residence without saying a word.

An examination of the mobile telephone of the suspect revealed more than 2,500 tosatsu, or voyeur, clips of several women, including the victim in the April case, police said previously.
