TOKYO —
Police arrested a former maintenance worker for Schindler Elevator KK on Saturday on suspicion of deliberately stopping one of the company’s elevators near Tokyo and obstructing the company’s business.

The infrastructure ministry and Schindler Elevator said Lee Ung Dae, a 36-year-old South Korean national living in Tokyo, halted six Schindler elevators at buildings, mainly apartments, in Tokyo and elsewhere on eight separate occasions from June to August by setting off the emergency stop mechanism. A total of seven people were locked in the elevators but nobody was injured.

In response to the arrest, Schindler issued a comment that, “We feel considerable regret and apologize from the bottom of our hearts.”

Schindler fired Lee in August and filed a criminal complaint against him with the police.

Lee was arrested on suspicion of stopping an elevator at a hotel in Ibaraki Prefecture, north of Tokyo, on Aug. 2, obstructing business of Schindler engineers by forcing them to check and repair the lift, according to the police.

The suspect admitted to the allegation, the police said.

Lee has told Schindler’s in-house fact-finding team that he had a disagreement with the company and wanted to cause it problems, according to officials of the company.

The company said he was apparently disgruntled after demotion from a branch manager to a rank-and-file employee.

Schindler examined the 90 elevators being maintained by Lee and found no abnormalities.

In a separate case, the Tokyo District Court last week acquitted a former Schindler executive over an elevator accident in 2006 that killed a 16-year-old high school boy in Tokyo, while handing down suspended prison terms to three maintenance company officials.
