Police said Tuesday they have arrested three youths for robbing two pizza delivery boys in Tama and Hachioji in September.
According to police, the three suspects—aged between 16 and 19—followed the two pizza delivery boys on their rounds. After making a number of deliveries, the 17-year-old part-time workers were forced off their bikes by the gang, TBS reported. The gang smashed lights on the motorbikes with metal bats and threatened the pizza delivery boys with a knife, police said.
Police said that one of the gang used to work part time at the pizza company. He was quoted as saying he and his friends needed money for fun.
