10 Comments

Police said Wednesday they are looking for a man who robbed a convenience store in Ome City, Tokyo, on Tuesday morning. Police believe the same man robbed the store in April.

TV Asahi reported that the man came into the store at 1:20 a.m. and threatened a 21-year-old employee with a knife, demanding money. He left the store and fled on a bicycle.

Police said the suspect fits the description of the man who robbed the same store on April 30. He was described as being 30-40 years old and was wearing a black cap and sunglasses.

This is a testament to the deterrent power of the Japanese police.

"Police said the suspect fits the description of the man who robbed the same store on April 30. He was described as being 30-40 years old and was wearing a black cap and sunglasses."

Wow that is a "good" discription.... 30-40 years old..... Um okay...so there could be a few million suspects....next clue? Black cap and sun glasses....oh much better. So we got.... Only a few million suspects now!

Obviously if someone walks into a store at 1:20am with sunglasses on they are up to no good. Hit the security button...

Robbing the same place twice? Fled on a bicycle? If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

I'm guessing that this is not the kind of repeat business the store was looking for.

His name should be 稲妻 They will never suspect him of striking in the same place twice!

I heard the criminal always returns to the scene of a crime but this is ridiculous. It must be convienent for him.
