A student, 19, has been arrested for the alleged assault on a woman in an unmanned police box last week. The student reportedly approached the woman in her 20s on a bike. After his initial assault, the woman fled for the police box where no policemen were on duty and she was assaulted again.
Tokyo police used the video footage from the police box to identify and arrest the teen. Police say things such as the number of patrols and reported incidents determine whether a police officer is on duty.
