TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Thursday announced the arrest of a 30-year-old male company employee who admits to molesting dozens of women in the capital, reports NHK (Oct. 1).

On September 10, Kosuke Motoki is alleged to have used both hands to reach up the skirt of a 21-year-old female college student to fondle the lower-half of her body as she commuted home in Nerima Ward.

Motoki, who has been charged with violating a public nuisance ordinance, admits to the charges. “The sight of a woman in a skirt is irresistible,” the suspect is quoted by police, “and my sexual desire causes me to touch her rear end.”

Motoki added that he has committed similar crimes on roughly 30 occasions over the past year and a half.

Police used surveillance camera footage taken near the scene of the crime to identify Motoki as a suspect.
