In one of the more bizarre stories about problems with public transport this week, it seems that a man in Tokyo who was accused of groping a 15 year old high school student caused chaos as he fled the scene in JR Akabane Station. While the student was reporting the incident to staff, the man jumped from the platform and ran away along the rail tracks leading into the station. As a result some 80,000 commuters suffered delays as 37 trains on all 5 nearby lines were affected as they stopped services as the accused was in the path of oncoming trains.
