Japanese actor Tsunenori Aoki was arrested again on April 20 on suspicion of assaulting and putting his hand in a woman’s skirt.

The actor, known for his role as Ryoma Sengoku in the superhero series “Kamen Rider Gaim,” was suspected of inappropriately putting his right hand inside an unidentified woman’s skirt, as reported by Sanspo via Tokusatsu Network.


Aoki said he was drunk at the time and could not remember the incident. During investigation, security cameras around the area where the incident occurred also showed two other women being assaulted.

Earlier on April 5, authorities arrested Aoki  after a woman in her 30s reported having her breasts groped from behind by the actor on March 4 while walking in Setagaya ward in Tokyo at around 1:30 a.m. The woman was also slightly injured in her neck when Aoki fled the scene. The woman later identified Aoki through items he dropped while fleeing.


The first arrest on April 5 cost Aoki his role in the Messiah Project play “Messiah: Engraved Moonlight.” He was replaced by actor Kohei Murakami, more popularly known as Kusaka Masato, in “Kamen Raider Faiz.”

Aoki was previously associated with the Dolcestar talent agency. The company said the actor parted ways with them on March 31 after a mutual agreement.  Alfred Bayle /ra
