The cops at that koban must have thought they hit the lottery when he walked right in while the ink was probably still wet on their "wanted" sheet.

Sounds like the woman is in a dangerous line of work probably exacerbated by the coronavirus. It’s a sickening violence. Lock him up forever.

Dont see what the Coronavirus has to do with anything, but yes "deli health" is a dangerous profession. The oldest one in humanity, though.

He stole HER bag with 110,000 yen but 'lost' his phone?? I wonder if they were both trying to rob each other after a trick.
