According to police, the man, who is a university student, was standing in an apartment building stairwell, with his wrists tied together with rope and wearing only a bra and panties, when a 19-year old female vocational school student who was also a resident of said apartment building passed by. Upon noticing her, the suspect called out to her saying “Please untie the rope.”
Police were able to identify the suspect thanks to security camera footage. After being arrested the suspect admitted to the charges, saying, “I did it in order to satisfy my sexual desires.”
Kochi police also revealed that since the summer of 2015 there have been 5 similar incidents. They are currently investigating whether this suspect is connected to these cases as well.
I can’t imagine this guy was able to tie the rope around his wrists all that tightly. Although he may have been doing this pretty regularly so perhaps he’s gotten pretty proficient at tying himself up. Then again, even if he was really good at trying himself up I would think he wouldn’t want to make the knot too difficult to untie in the off chance that his victim actually agrees to let him loose. And for that matter what would he do if someone actually does untie him? Also, did this guy leave his residence already dressed like this? Or did he leave fully clothed and disrobe in some bushes somewhere like a perverted superhero? These are all questions that the Japanese media has failed to ask. They are also questions that may be better left unanswered. Anyway, now that this guy got arrested I hope that he realizes that this isn’t the way to satisfy his “sexual desires.”
