A man slashed an employee of an internet cafe and stole about 300,000 yen in Tokyo’s Bunkyo Ward, police said Wednesday.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the cafe on the 4th floor of a commercial building. There was no one else in the cafe at the time, Sankei Shimbun reported. The assailant threatened the employee, a man in his 50s, who was in the kitchen, with a knife and ordered him to open the safe. He slashed the man in the shoulder and thigh and fled with about 300,000 yen.
The employee was found lying on the floor, bleeding from his wound, by a co-worker who had returned to pick up something he had forgotten. Police said the victim was taken to hospital and was in a stable condition.© Japan Today
