Whoops?

Sadly incidents of drunk men forcibly groping and kissing women on the streets of Japan are all too common. However, on Wednesday news outlets in Japan began reporting on a particularly “unique” incident involving a street groper that has probably left many in a strange state of amusement, confusion, and disgust.

According to Tokyo Metropolitan Police, in April of this year Kenichi Saito, a 48-year-old office worker, forced himself on a man in his 20s who was dressed in women’s clothing and sitting on the ground in Tokyo’s Taito Ward.

Police say Saito embraced the younger man, groped his chest, and kissed him without consent.

Because Saito was allegedly drunk at the time of the incident police suspect that Saito mistook the victim for a woman.

Saito has been arrested under suspicion of having committed indecent assault. Saito has admitted to the allegations, reportedly telling police “There’s no doubt about it. I kissed and touched [him].”

Reports have yet to reveal how police came to the conclusion that Saito was their man. Further, it remains unclear where exactly Saito bought the “nice” t-shirt he appears wearing in footage shot after his arrest. To see a screenshot of this footage and his “nice” t-shirt see the featured image above.
