TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested a 36-year-old male nurse who suspected in a series of sexual assaults of women, reports Nippon News Network (Nov. 11) .

On the evening of May 7 of last year, Koji Iida allegedly trespassed into the first-floor apartment of a woman, aged in her 20s, in Sugninami Ward by climbing through a window.

“Don’t more or I’ll kill you,” he threatened while trying to fondle her chest and lower half of her body. He then fled the scene.

Iida, who has been charged with attempted rape and other crimes, admits to the allegations. “I couldn’t control my sexual desire,” the suspect is quoted by police. “I’ve done this two other times.”

Iida emerged as a person of interest following the examination of security camera footage as a part of an investigation into a separate indecent assault case that took place in the same area last month, according to TBS News (Nov. 11).
