A Japanese man is facing multiple charges of rape after admitting he faked a sleep study to lure and rape 100 women from across Japan.
According to investigators, 54-year old Hideyuki Noguchi began his assault in 2012, when he began placing advertisements seeking female participants for a study ‘measuring blood pressure during sleep.’ But the whole thing was a ruse as Noguchi has no medical training whatsoever, and he successfully used the ads to lure the unsuspecting women to hotels and hot springs, where he allegedly drugged and raped them.
According to CNN, Noguchi filmed all rape sessions and sold the videos to porn sites, making about $100,000 in the process. He was arrested after one of his victims saw herself in a video.
Police have since identified 30 of his victims … and he currently stands charged on 30 counts of incapacitated rape.
