Police in Tokyo on Wednesday arrested a Vietnamese man suspected of sexually assaulting many Japanese women on the street.
Pham Minh Toan, 23, was arrested as police suspected he was involved in at least eight assault incidents this year, according to Tokyo Reporter.
The report said in one case on May 26, Toan allegedly approached a woman in her 20s from behind, pushed her down, ripped her stockings and touched her.
She was injured and only recovered after two weeks.
Toan admitted to touching the woman but told the police that she fell on her own, the report said.
He is studying Japanese at a vocational school.
