11 Comments

Police are looking for a man who robbed a convenience store in Tokyo's Shinagawa Ward and then tried to rob another store 200 meters away only five minutes later.

According to police, the man entered the first store at around 3:30 a.m. Saturday. TV Asahi reported that he threatened the 23-year-old store clerk with a knife and demanded money. He left with about 60,000 yen.

Five minutes later, the same man -- seen on store surveillance camera footage -- entered another store nearby, threatened the clerk and demanded money. However, the clerk sounded an alarm and the man fled with nothing.

The man is described as being in his late 40s or 50s, about 160-170 cms tall and wearing a blue shirt.

nice description:"late 40s or 50s, about 160-170 cms tall and wearing a blue shirt" that narrows the list down, shouldn't be easy to find the thief.

Wait...no generic white mask covering this guy's face? I surely hope they find this loser, but based on description, it won't be an easy task.

Then do away with all of your household knifes, simple pocket knifes and sharpen your teeth to better eat the meat you might be having.
