TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- A Taiwanese man has been arrested for tossing a container of semen onto a Japanese woman as she walked down the street in Taipei last Monday (Nov. 12).
On Nov. 12, a 38-year-old unemployed man surnamed Hsu (許) injected his own semen in a small box and lay in wait for a victim on Zhongshan North Road Section 6 in the Tianmu area of Taipei City's Shilin District. When a 43-year-old Japanese woman identified as Ken Ken (Chinese surname 曾, Tseng) appeared to be walking alone, Hsu approached her from behind and tossed the container of semen onto her left hand, reported Liberty Times.
When Ken Ken realized some sort of fluid had been tossed on her arm, she turned around and looked at the assailant who stared back at her for about 10 seconds. As she then tried to walk away, the man started to follow her, so she spun to her left and quickly ran to a major road.
When she returned home, she discovered that the substance had the odor of semen and her hand began to become inflamed and swell. She angrily told her husband about the incident and went with him and a Taiwanese friend to the police department to file a report, according to China Times.

The woman said that police initially blew off her claims and did not file a report on the standard three-sheet notebook (三聯單), reported ETtoday. It was not until a Taiwanese friend contacted a person they knew in the police department that an investigation was begun three days later, according to Apple Daily.
However, police deny that they ignored the woman, saying that it was instead a misunderstanding due to the language barrier, despite the efforts of her Taiwanese friend who tried to translate.
Police then reviewed surveillance footage and were able to trace Hsu's movements to his residence in Datong District, where they arrested him. After police showed Hsu footage of the assault, he confessed to his vile crime.
Hsu told police he had been watching Japanese pornographic videos which depicted similar acts and he enjoyed watching the shocked reaction of women when he hurled semen on them. Hsu said that when he felt under a lot of pressure, he would release it by tossing semen on unsuspecting women as they walked by, according to Apple Daily.
He said that when he saw Ken Ken walking alone, he could no longer restrain himself and acted out his fantasy. Hsu claimed the liquid was not harmful because it was "pure" semen and he did not add any other materials.
Hsu said he felt very remorseful about what he did to the Japanese woman. Hsu's case has been transferred to the Shilin District Prosecutor's Office on charges of assault and sexual harassment.
