Police in Tokyo have sent papers on two 17-year-old high school students to prosecutors after they intentionally shoved two shopping carts down an escalator at a shopping mall in January. One of the carts hit and injured a woman.
The boys, who told police they did it as a prank, shoved the carts at two different times down the escalator at the Aeon Itabashi Shopping Center in Tokyo’s Itabashi Ward, Fuji TV reported. One of the boys posted a video of the second incident on the video-sharing app TikTok.
The two boys later apologized to Aeon officials shopping mall and turned themselves in to police after the video went viral. They told police they were just having fun and didn’t mean to hurt anyone or cause any damage.© Japan Today
