TOKYO (TR) – A 35-year-old man in custody over the alleged rape of five intoxicated women has been accused in a sixth case, police have revealed, reports Fuji News Network (Jan. 13).

Last July, Yoshiaki Kajiwara, a restaurant employee, found the woman, aged in her 30s, intoxicated on a railway platform. “Are you doing fine?” he reportedly asked.

After lacing a drink consumed by the woman with a sleeping powder, Kajiwara is then alleged to have sexually assaulted her at his residence.

Police did not reveal whether the suspect admitted to the allegations.
