Police in Akiruno, western Tokyo, said Tuesday they have arrested four teenagers on suspicion of beating up a man and robbing him last October.
According to police, the four suspects, who cannot be named because they are minors, attacked the 32-year-old company employee who was on his way home. TV Asahi reported that they beat him with metal bats and then stole 6,000 yen in cash.
Police identified them from the motor bikes which they left at the scene.
Police were quoted as saying that three of the four suspects have admitted to the crime and said they did it because they wanted money.© Japan Today
