Research may be tough but this isn’t how you blow off steam.

On Wednesday (Aug. 9), police in Tokyo arrested a 34-year-old male graduate student from Japan’s prestigious Tokyo University (TodaI) for allegedly improperly embracing a high school girl from behind as she was walking along a Tokyo road.

According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department, on June 1 at about 9:15 a.m., Kotaro Fukuhara, a graduate student conducting research at Tokyo University,  approached a female high school student who was walking along a road in Tokyo’s Arakawa Ward from behind, put a tote bag over her head and embraced her. The unwarranted embrace caused the victim to scream, which then resulted in Fukuhara fleeing the scene.

On August 2 Fukuhara was arrested after he was caught allegedly following a different high school girl in an apartment complex in Toshima Ward. After this arrest police were able to link Fukuhara to the June 1 incident thanks to security camera footage obtained during the investigation of that incident. Fukuhara’s second arrest was for attempted indecent assault.

Fukuhara is partially denying the allegations, reportedly telling police that even though he did follow her and put a bag over her head he did not “embrace her.”

As for his motives Fukuhara was quoted by police as saying “I did it for the thrill and sense of immorality.” and “I felt relieved after doing something completely opposite to rigid and structured research.”
