According to police, the suspect, who was identified as Takeshi Furusawa, 32, was apprehended on the platform at Miyanozawa subway station on Thursday night. Police said he was stopped and questioned because he resembled a description of the assailant given by several witnesses earlier in the year, NTV reported.
Furusawa is suspected of throwing mayonnaise at schoolgirls at various stations since April. Police said there have been eight such cases reported, in which an unknown man came up behind schoolgirls and threw mayonnaise at their backs.
