A male hairstylist from Ginza, Japan has been arrested by Tokyo Metropolitan Police for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his salon earlier this year, reports Nippon News Network (Oct. 18).
An incident occurred in August in which Hiroaku Aoshika allegedly forced the woman, who is aged in her 20s, to consume a beverage that was spiked with sleeping powder. He then sexually molested her while she was barely conscious.
Aoshika has admitted to the indecent assault allegations and was quoted as saying “I photographed her upper body while she was nude and touched her chest” by Tsukiji Police Station.
While the salon was closed, Aoshika beckoned the girl in from the street and asked her if she had any interest in being a hair model, reports state.
Police officers who were conducting the investigation searched Aoshika’s residence and found sleeping powder with contents matching that found in the system of the victim.
