Three masked men robbed a love hotel in Chiba on Sunday morning, getting away with about 180,000 yen.
According to police, the robbery occurred at around 3:30 a.m. at the hotel in Oamishirasato. Fuji TV reported that the three men, wearing ski masks, entered the hotel, which looks like a castle. They went up to the second-floor office and threatened the 76-year-old owner and three employees on duty with knives and a broken beer bottle, and demanded "kane, kane kane" (money, money, money), police said.
The owner handed over about 180,000 yen and the three men ran outside and got away in a car. No one was injured in the incident.
Police said they are analyzing street surveillance camera footage to try and identify the car.© Japan Today
