No matter how cynical we are, we have to admit that there’s a lot of good in this world. There are people who love to extend a helping hand to those in need. And there are people who are willing to lay their lives so that we can sleep peacefully. But, practically speaking, our society is infested with perverts of various kinds. One such example was spotted in China.
According to Taiwan News, on 8th March, Tamsui police received a call that a strange man had disguised himself as a woman and was hiding in the women’s bathroom of Tamkang University.
The suspect, surnamed Chen, was a 24-year-old graduate from National Tsing Hua University and lived near Tamkang University. He’s currently employed as an engineer in the IT industry.
Reportedly, on the day of the incident, female students in the dormitory saw Chen in a long skirt, heavy coat, wig, glasses and a surgical mask. Additionally, he had a scarf wrapped around his neck to cover his Adam’s apple. And when they saw him going in and out of the fourth-floor bathroom, they knew something was fishy.
The students’ fears were confirmed when they noticed Chen taking photos of them showering. Soon after that, Chen was confronted by several female students which caused him to lock himself in a toilet stall.
Given the severity of the situation, the students kept pounding on the stall door, demanding him to come out. And at about 11.20 p.m. they notified an instructor surnamed Huang, who then called the police. The officers discovered that Chen was carrying a pinhole camera to take nude pictures of women.
Chen was taken to the police station and his parents were notified. Reportedly, when his father learnt about his son’s perversion, he beat him up with an umbrella inside the station. After some further questioning, Chen was transferred to the Shilin District Prosecutor’s Office on charges of Offenses Against Privacy.
As we don’t live in a utopian world, it’ll be hypocritical to say that our society will become devoid of sick people like Chen in the near future. But we can follow the example set by the female students of Tamkang University and confront them on the spot.
