MIYAGI (TR) – Miyagi Prefectural Police on Wednesday re-arrested a female university student suspected in series of cases in which she is alleged to have drugged and robbed multiple men she had met on dating sites, reports the Sankei Shimbun (Aug. 26).
On the evening of June 16, Midori Ohama, a 23-year-old student at Tohoku Pharmaceutical University, is alleged to have given a 44-year-old male chocolate laced with sleeping powder at an izakaya restaurant in Sendai’s Aoba Ward. When the victim passed out after consuming the gift, the suspect stole 10,000 yen in cash and two credit cards from the his wallet.
Ohama then used the credit cards to purchase clothes valued at 100,000 yen.
Ohama admits to stealing the credit cards but not the cash. “I wanted money, and I also wanted to punish dirty old men,” the suspect is quoted by police in explaining her motivation for the crimes.
The suspect met her victims on deai-kei matchmaking sites. Upon her initial meeting with a victim, she would present him with chocolate that was “handmade.”
Since June, Ohama has been arrested three other times for involvement in similar crimes.
