Police in Tokyo are looking for two men who stole handbags from women in three incidents one after the other early Wednesday morning in Shinjuku Ward.
According to police, a woman in her 30s called 110 just after 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, reporting that her handbag was snatched while she was walking along a street in Okubo. She told police that two men came up behind her, beat and kicked her, then took her handbag which contained about 8,000 yen in cash, Sankei Shimbun reported. The woman sustained minor injuries, including bruises, police said.
Shortly after, two similar incidents occurred on streets in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho district, also involving young women. Police said they believe the same men were involved in both those cases and are analyzing street surveillance camera footage to try and identify the men.© Japan Today
