Last month, a photographer in his 30s was arrested by the Chiba Prefectural Police for taking pictures under the skirt of a female cosplayer during the Niconico Chokaigi convention held at Makuhari Messe, Chiba.
A reporter contacted the police and provided all the evidence to catch the criminal. The problem is that the photographer doesn’t seem to work alone. He was with a group of people and when he saw that the female coser wasn’t paying attention, he followed her and secretly filmed a low angle scene under her skirt.
The reporter saw the photographer’s ugly behavior at that event, and recorded the evidence, then reported it to the police. The next day, the photographer was apprehended. After questioning and quickly searching the photographer’s video camera, the police found a number of videos shot under the skirts aimed at the underwear of different cosplayers.
It seems this man has been doing this infamous act for a long time, so he does it very methodically. In order to avoid the search, he changed his belongings such as camera bags, hats from the day before, even after entering the location, he changed his clothes in the multi-purpose toilet. Unfortunately this time the event security officers and the police kept an eye on him and caught him.
After confronting the police, he admitted to the charges and expressed regret for his actions now and in the past.
In the past, a man in his 30s was also arrested about the same thing, he collaborated with many people filming this type of stealth video, commonly known as “Low Angler”. These people just wait for the high school girls to cosplay, then hold the camcorder at a low angle every time the subject “sits down” and repeat the same action many times in 10 minutes. After capturing the videos, they will upload and sell the videos to people who want to buy them on the Internet.
According to Niconico News, it is quite difficult to arrest someone on suspicion of committing this crime, because there are still some cases where low-angle photography is allowed with the consent between the cosplayer and the photographer or the consent of the photographer. cosplayers.
