89% of Japanese women customers not alerting police when attacked on trains

"About nine out of 10 women who fall victim to groping aboard trains do not alert authorities, according to a survey released Thursday by the National Police Agency....The NPA plans to strengthen patrols, create a mechanism to make it easier for victims to report gropings, and also work with railways to install more security cameras...As reasons for not contacting the police, 83 women, or 30.6 percent, said it would be "troublesome" to involve them, while 72, or 26.6 percent, said they thought questioning and other investigative processes would be "time-consuming."
