TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police officers have arrested a 38-year-old truck driver for demanding a girl send him photos of her underwear, reports the Sankei Shimbun (Aug. 8).

Officers from the Ayase Police Station, located in Adachi Ward, took Takaya Sato into custody for allegedly sending a threatening message to the mobile phone of a 15-year-old girl last November.

The message included the victim’s name, photograph, school name, and home address. “Send me underwear photos,” the suspect wrote. “If you do not, I will leak all your personal information onto the Internet.”

The girl reportedly obliged with the request. “I wanted to see a girl’s underwear,” Sato told police officers in admitting to the allegations.

According to police, Sato received the personal information of the girl from his younger brother. In the message, the suspect pretended to be a classmate of the girl.
