Sex crimes in Seoul subways have nearly doubled over the last four years. According to a report submitted to Future Hope Alliance lawmaker Yoon Sang-il by the National Police Agency, the number of sex crimes in Seoul subways rose from 552 in 2007 to 1,192 in 2010.
Some 841 cases have been reported in the first seven months of this year alone. "Many women do not report sex crimes to the police as they feel embarrassed, so we believe the actual figure to be larger than what we see on paper," a police spokesman said.
