FUKUOKA--A 37-year-old man here admitted he sent obscene photos to a total stranger using his iPhone’s wireless AirDrop service, police said Aug. 20.

Police the same day referred the case to prosecutors, saying the suspect, a resident of Fukuoka’s Nishi Ward, violated the prefecture's nuisance ordinances.

On July 5 at 8:45 p.m. while riding the subway, the man sent photos of nude women he downloaded to a 34-year-old man who lives in Itoshima, Fukuoka Prefecture whom he does not know, according to the Sawara Police Station.

It is the first time anyone has been accused of such an offense in the prefecture, police said.
