Police in Tokyo said Monday they have arrested a man after he drugged a female acquaintance whom he owed money to, and then stole 350,000 yen in cash from her while she was passed out.
Police said the suspect, Teppei Nakayubi, 38, who is unemployed, was charged with robbing the 20-year-old woman while she was under an induced sleep at a hotel in Ota Ward in January, Fuji TV reported. Police said Nakayubi returned the 350,000 yen he owed the woman, but shortly thereafter, he managed to slip her a sleeping drug under the guise of some harmless vitamins. While she slept, he stole back all the money he had just returned to her.
Nakayubi told police that he needed the money.© Japan Today
