Two days ago the local Marukyo supermarket was robbed.
A man, armed with what appeared to be a knife, threatened four employees as they were leaving the store after closing hours. The robber, a man in his twenties or thirties, 175 cm tall and of medium build, ordered the employees to open the store’s safe. When the employees replied that they didn’t know how to open it, the man then bound the employees’ hands and legs with masking tape and stole the money from the four employees’ wallets. No one was injured in the robbery.
The robber, who is still on the lam, made off with a total of ¥9000 ($115). Crime doesn’t pay . . . much.
