June 15, 2017. Transmitted at 21:19. Tokai TV.

A 46-year-old male office worker living in West Ward, Nagoya City was arrested for writing implied threats of murder on the Twitter of a member of idol group SKE48.

Arrested was Matsui Hideo (46 years old). The suspicion is that in May of this year, he threatened SKE48 member Suda Akari (25 years old) by writing implied threats of murder such as “Die” on her Twitter.

Suda saw the writings and filed a report with the police. When police investigated, they were able to identify that it was the act of Matsui, the suspect, who had frequently attended Suda’s events.

During interrogation, Matsui said that he, “Liked her too much and did it out of jealousy,” and is thus admitting to the charges.

The police believe that Matsui was unhappy seeing Suda interact only with other people on Twitter, which led to his acts.
