The defendant Kitabatake was arrested. He had been known as a soccer player since his school days.

The defense denied the indictment.

On February 19, the Tokyo District Court heard the first trial of Atomu Kitabatake, 27, who is accused of indecent assault and other crimes. Between January and March of last year, Kitabatake is alleged to have hugged several women in their 20s from behind and inflicted injuries on them. While the prosecution argued that Kitabatake “went out of his way to commit the crime in an out-of-the-way place,” the defense denied the charges as stated at the beginning of the trial.

FRIDAY Digital” reported in detail the incident that Kitabatake is alleged to have committed in an article distributed on April 10, 2011. We would like to reproduce the article and look back at the circumstances of the trouble in which several women were victims and the unexpected face of the defendant Kitabatake (some corrections have been made).

Huffing and puffing and breathing hard


A young woman’s scream echoed in a residential area late at night. The startled man fled the scene. The woman immediately reported the incident to a nearby police box.

On April 7, 2011, the Setagaya Police Station of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department announced the arrest of Kitabatake, a model living in Shimoma, Tokyo, on suspicion of indecent assault. After midnight on March 13, Kitabatake followed a woman in her 20s on her way home from a station in Setagaya Ward. When the woman entered a deserted alleyway, Kitabatake suddenly hugged her from behind on the street and touched her.

The woman was breathing heavily and silently as he committed the crime. When the woman resisted and squatted down, she injured her right knee, which will require approximately seven days to heal. Kitabatake was startled by the volume of the woman’s screams and ran away from the scene. Kitabatake was surprised by the volume of the woman’s screams and ran away from the scene.

There had been several similar incidents in the area. The common denominator among all the women was that they were wearing skirts when they were attacked. The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department was investigating the possibility that Kitabatake may have committed additional crimes.

Kitabatake had a glamorous career as a model and athlete. Will his claim that a “hug for the purpose of picking up girls” does not constitute indecent assault be accepted in court?
