89% of train groping victims don’t report it

About nine out of 10 women who fall victim to groping aboard trains do not alert authorities, according to a survey released Thursday by the National Police Agency.

The agency polled 3,256 men and women in three metropolitan areas centering on Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka, and found about 80 percent were supportive of installing security cameras on trains as a deterrent to groping.

The NPA plans to strengthen patrols, create a mechanism to make it easier for victims to report gropings, and also work with railways to install more security cameras.
