CHIBA (TR) – Was the pink ski mask too obvious?

Chiba Prefectural Police early Wednesday arrested a “Spider-Man” who allegedly entered JR Ichikawa Station illegally on multiple occasions last month, reports Chiba Nippo (April 3).

At approximately 3:30 a.m., police apprehended a 35-year-old male, who was attired in a form-fitting black suit and pink ski mask, after he climbed a wall and entered the station.

Station staff members became aware of the intruder after surveillance camera footage showed a man wearing the same clothing entering the station in an identical manner on March 27 and 29.

The man, who has been charged with trespassing, has admitted to the allegations. “The thrill of entering a place with nobody around was pleasurable,” the suspect is quoted by police.
