Police said Friday that a man robbed a Tiffany store in Shinjuku's Mitsukoshi Alcott department store on Thursday, making off with four rings worth 16 million yen, and pointing what appeared to be a gun at the female employee who chased after him.
Police said the man posed as a customer and asked a store employee in English to show him some rings just before the store closed at 6 p.m. When she took them out of the showcase, the man put them on his finger and held them up to the light. Then, he ran off.
He is described as being a non-Japanese of Asian descent, in his 40s, and 170-180 cm tall.© News reports
