A man has been arrested after he allegedly raped his girlfriend after giving her a cup of tea mixed with sleeping pills in Toshima Ward, Tokyo, Japan.

The accused, identified as 29-year-old Hayata Ishikawa, a Shibuya Ward office employee residing in Toshima Ward, Japan, and the victim, who is in her 20s, met on a dating app and started a relationship in early April. A month later, on the night of May 1, Ishikawa invited the woman to his apartment to watch a movie that night, Japan Today reported.

While the couple was at Ishikawa's apartment, Ishikawa asked his girlfriend to have sex with him. However, when she refused to have sex with him, Ishikawa mixed some sleeping pills in a cup of tea and gave it to his girlfriend. The victim consumed the cup of tea and lost consciousness. After the woman lost consciousness, Ishikawa allegedly raped her.

Based on a complaint filed by the victim, the officers launched an investigation into the incident and arrested the 29-year-old man. When interrogated by investigating officers, Ishikawa admitted to committing the crime.

Officers are investigating whether he has committed similar sex crimes in the past.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a 19-year-old woman was reportedly heinously assaulted and gang raped by three young men after a birthday party in Modi Nagar town Ghaziabad, India on Sunday, Aug. 14, as previously reported.

The unnamed 19-year-old victim reportedly attended a birthday party on Sunday, Aug. 14, when things took a tragic turn. At the party, a man allegedly served her a drink laced with sedatives. As she began losing consciousness, the suspect reportedly took her to a room and called his friends to join him. The three accused men, identified only as Shekhar, Krishna, and Arjun then took turns raping the drugged young victim.

After the ordeal, the trio abandoned the woman in the room and quickly fled the scene together.

Following this, on Monday, Aug. 15, the victim along with her father went to the Modi Nagar Police Station and lodged a First Information Report (FIR) against the three accused men.

Following this, an inquiry was launched into the assault, and all three accused were arrested.
