A school teacher was arrested on a charge of voyeurism after allegedly taking upskirt photos of a student while riding an escalator at a train station, police in Japan said.

Chiba police said that they have arrested 29-year-old Hirokatsu Murakami, after being accused of taking upskirt photos with his cellphone.

According to the police investigation, Murakami, who is a teacher at the Yachiyo Shoin High School, was riding the escalator at the train station when the 16-year-old student was right in front of him.

He pulled out his cellphone and placed it under the skirt of the girl before snapping several photos around 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

Another passenger noticed what the teacher was doing and the police were called.

During questioning, Murakami admitted to taking the photos, saying that upskirt images turn him on and he couldn’t control himself.
