Coward, he should try robbing a more substantial target, preferably someone that can fight back and not easy prey. But thankfully he got arrested since it was reported.

That's what bullies do, they are cowards so they take it out on others who can't resist as well. He is a coward, a ninny and a dirtbag.

I don't get it! He has a job, but he robbed her and made off with ¥5,000? This makes as much sense as a crunchy soup sandwich!

If he robbed a bodybuilder instead would it justify his actions? If he’s going to target a person who looks stronger than him, he would use a weapon and lives might be lost.

his actions of robbing is wrong, no matter who his victim was.

That's why Japan needs to make a mandatory military training program here, not unlike South Korea. These useless bums need some discipline. He wasn't just looking for money, he was also probably looking for some make up to hide his pathetic self.

I disagree. If he tried to rob a bodybuilder, I´d feel completely different about it. In that case, I would just want to see the video.

Do you also feel that violence against small children is same as violence against adults? It is really all the same to you?

Robbers will always try to rob The weakest most likely to have money people they can find.

To try to rob someone who look like they can put up a fight doesn't make sense

I don't justify violence or robbery or any type of crime, but 18 YO IS NOT A CHILDREN, so stop acting as if the victim was an elementary student!!!

Btw, that idiot states he didn't choke the girl, even tho is filmed on camera? Is he stupid or something, also this article says nothing about robbing the money, we assumed that because it says he stole her bag and then dump it later, but 5,000¥ is kinda ridiculous reason for robbery, perhaps he wanted the "rush" of attacking a girl

In any case, i'm glad this ass was arrested and hope he's convicted, but i highly doubt it goes beyond than slap in the face and a couple nights in jail.
