Police in Chiba City said Monday they have arrested a 30-year-old unemployed man for harassing his former girlfriend and threatening to kill her and her relatives unless she paid him money.
According to police, the suspect, identified as Yuta Nomura, told his ex-girlfriend, a woman in her 20s who lives in Akihabara, that he would "kill everyone" she loved if she refused to him. "I'll follow you, I'll find you and I'll kill you, if you don't give me money," he reportedly said, according to TV Asahi.
Police said that Nomura had scared his ex-girlfriend into giving him 120,000 yen in cash in December. The two had only been dating for about a month before they broke up. They originally met through a mobile phone-based app for singles to find dating partners.© Japan Today
