AICHI (TR) – Aichi Prefectural Police on Wednesday arrested a 41-year-old priest for allegedly sneaking into a restroom in a restaurant in Toyoahashi City to take illicit films with a hidden camera, reports Nikkan Sports (Mar. 14).
At around 9:20 p.m. on Tuesday, Kazuhiro Ogasa allegedly trespassed into a women’s bathroom of a yakiniku (grilled beef) restaurant for the purpose of taking tosatsu, or voyeur, footage.
The matter emerged after a staff member found the camera taped beneath a water tank of a Japanese-style women’s toilet and alerted police.
Ogasa, who has been accused of trespassing and violating a public nuisance ordinance, admits to the allegations. “I did it to satisfy my sexual desire,” the suspect was quoted by the Toyohashi Police Station.
