Tokyo cops: Man smeared own feces on teen girl
Tokyo Reporter -- Dec 28
Tokyo Metropolitan Police arrested a 24-year-old male company employee for smearing his own excrement on a girl in Mitaka City, reports TV Asahi (Dec. 27).

On December 5 at 9:45 p.m., Kenta Nagahama used a bicycle to come up from behind the girl, aged in her late teens, at an intersection and rub feces into her mouth with both of his hands.

Nagahama, who has been charged with assault, admits to the allegations, telling police that the excrement was indeed his own.

Approximately 40 minutes after the incident, the suspect came up from behind another girl and embraced her. This case took place on a road about 1.4 kilometers away from the first attack.
