A man was arrested after he jumped into the home of a woman and attempted to rape her.
Police in Japan, said that the man has been arrested after he drilled a hole in the floor of his apartment and entered the home below before trying to rape a woman he was in love with.
Police in Tsukuba, arrested 51-year-old Masahito Sato, on charges of illegal entry and indecent assault causing bodily harm when he attacked the 39-year-old woman.
According to police, Sato was a frequent customer at a restaurant, which is run by the woman. He told police that he has romantic feelings for the woman.
Sato moved into the apartment directly above the woman’s apartment shortly before the attack. Sato allegedly stalked the woman and found out where she lived.
It is unclear how Sato knew that the apartment above her became vacant.
Police said that Sato used a saw and other equipment to make a hole in his floor so that he can fit through. He spent about 10 days making the hole.
On Tuesday about 12:30 a.m., Sato removed a panel in the ceiling of the woman’s home before going down to her apartment.
When the victim returned home, Sato pointed a stun gun at her and threw her to the ground before attempting to rape her.
When the woman resisted, Sato fled from the front door.
The suspect suffered minor injuries on his left hand.
Sato was located at a nearby store about five hours later, and he was arrested.
