According to police, Horiguchi came to the restaurant at 2 a.m. Sunday and ordered 15 meals worth 2,810 yen throughout the day. Restaurant staff called police after he told them he had no money to pay.
Horiguchi was quoted by police as saying, “I was so hungry and had no money, so I didn't know what else to do.”© Japan Today
