(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on a charge of unlawful imprisonment after allegedly picking up a woman who was sleeping on a train and taking her to his home without her knowledge, according to police in Japan.

Kanagawa police said that they have arrested 33-year-old Yoshifumi Kurita, after being accused of keeping an unconscious woman, 28, in his home against her will.

According to the police investigation, the 28-year-old woman boarded a train early Saturday morning, after a night of heavy drinking.

The woman fell asleep. When she woke up, it was already Sunday morning. She was lying on a sofa in Kurita’s home. The woman escaped when Kurita went to another room.

She ran to a convenience store nearby, and called police. Four other women have since come forward to say that they too were confined at the home of the suspect.

They all reported that after heavy drinking, they fell asleep on trains, and when they woke up, they found themselves in Kurita’s apartment.

Police believe that Kurita targeted drunk women who have fallen asleep on trains.
