Police in Fukuoka said Sunday that 28 bars in the Nakasu district received threatening phone calls on Saturday night. All of the bars have stickers on their doors or windows, saying that gang members are not welcome.
According to police, the phone calls were made between 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, Fuji TV reported.
The threats follow a series of attacks earlier this month in Kitakyushu, where there have been five incidents involving attacks on bars and bar employees. In all cases, the bars had posted stickers warning gangsters not to come in.© Japan Today
