(Scroll down for video) Three firefighters were arrested on a charge of sexual assault after allegedly sexually assaulting a colleague with a rubber tube, according to police in Japan.
Aichi police said that they have arrested 38-year-old Shintaro Sugiya, 25-year-old Yoshitsugu Kanazawa, and 26-year-old Keita Togari, after being accused sexually abusing and assaulting a male subordinate.
On Saturday, the three firefighters blew up a rubber tube and inserted into the body of their 20-year-old colleague. They then pinned down the victim and sexually assaulted him.
The man was not injured in the incidents. The three suspects admitted the allegations, saying that it started as a prank and it spiraled out of control.
One suspect said that the three just followed orders they received from their superior, claiming that he is a very scary person.
