Man arrested over convenience store robbery
Police said Sunday they have arrested a 35-year-old unemployed man for robbing a convenience store in Tokyo’s Adachi Ward on Friday.
According to police, the suspect, identified as Norio Fukaiya, entered a convenience store at 6:30 p.m. and threatened the clerk with a knife and demanded money.
Sankei Shimbun reported that the suspect fled with 45,000 yen. However, a store employee noted the number of his motorbike and notified police.
Police said they are questioning Fukaiya about his involvement in two other convenience store robberies in the same area in December.
