Japanese police have arrested a man suspected of being behind a computer hacking campaign following an exhaustive hunt that at one stage had authorities tracking down a cat for clues, reports said.
Yusuke Katayama, 30, was arrested on Sunday on charges of using a remote computer and sending a mass killing threat to a comic book event after months of evading investigators with a series of vexing cyber riddles, according to NHK.
The broadcaster aired footage of detectives escorting a chubby man with glasses into a police station.
Katayama is believed to have sent numerous threats from computers around the country, including against a school and a kindergarten attended by Emperor Akihito's grandchildren.
