  • Police arrested a 17-year-old high school student who followed 7 Men Samurai musical group member Taiko Sasaki on four separate occasions between April 1, 2021 and May 8, 2022. 
  • She began following him after she spotted him at the Shibuya Station in Tokyo and “fell in love at first sight.”
  • The teen would reportedly call on the musician and grab him, causing Sasaki to consult with the Shibuya Police Station in November. 
  • The police previously issued warnings and spoke to her parents. However, the student followed and approached Sasaki with a box cutter on April 30.
