A young man was arrested on a charge of sexual assault after allegedly forcibly removing a teen’s bra at a bar, police in Japan said.

Tsukuba police said that they have arrested 23-year-old Taishi Miyamoto, a student at the University of Tsukuba, after being accused of forcibly removing the underwear of the 18-year-old woman at the karaoke bar.

According to the police investigation, the incident occurred around 4:00 a.m. on Monday. Miyamoto and the woman had come to the bar in separate groups and they did not know each other.

The woman went into an empty room to make a phone call and was followed by Miyamoto. Miyamoto hugged her without consent and then put his hand up her dress.

He unhooked her bra and pulled down her underpants before fleeing from the scene. Miyamoto was identified through security cameras and was arrested.

During questioning, he told police that he was drunk at the time and does not remember anything. Police are also accusing Miyamoto of a similar incident several months ago.

Investigators now believe that Miyamoto threatened a woman in the street and demanded her to hand over her underwear.

The woman complied and he fled from the scene.
