Police are looking for three men who pulled a 72-year-old man out of his car and stole 8.2 million yen in cash in Tokyo's Edogawa ward.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 8 a.m. Sunday. TBS reported that the man told police he was about to drive out of a parking lot when three men approached his car and started verbally assaulting him, threatening to smash up his car.
Police quoted the man as saying one of the three yanked the car door open, dragged him out and threw him to the ground. A second man then reached into the back seat and grabbed the bag containing the cash. Then all three of them got into a car and fled.
According to Tokyo police, the man had recently sold a truck to an individual he had met via a close friend, and had been carrying the cash on him at the time of the incident.© Japan Today
