The case of the urine splasher: Tokyo police hunt bizarre serial offender
Tokyo police are hunting a motorcyclist who has splashed urine over at least six young women.
The serial splasher’s modus operandi is to speed by young women in their teens of 20s on his motorbike and throwing liquid in their faces or over their heads before speeding away.
The first case of the splasher happened in April in the north of the capital when a man threw a cupful of urine over a woman in the street before racing off, according to the Asahi Shimbun.
Police knew it was urine from the colour and other features, the paper reported.
Five similar incidents have occurred within a mile of the first splash and police believe it is highly unlikely they were not carried out by the same man.
