TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested a male nurse for allegedly molesting a woman returning home in Sumida Ward, reports Nippon News Network (July 21).

On the evening of May 20, Toshiya Tanaka, a 28-year-old employee at a rehabilitation institution, allegedly grabbed the woman, aged in her 20s, as she walked on a street and fondled her chest.

“When I drink I get aroused,” the suspect is quoted by police in admitting to the allegations.

In carrying out the attack, Tanaka approached the victim from behind. As he assaulted her, the woman fell the ground and suffered scrapes to both knees that required one month to heal.

Tanaka became a person of interest for police after the examination of security camera footage taken in the area.
