A man in Tokyo has been arrested for extortion after he intimidated his girlfriend into giving him 80,000 yen. He also told her to sell her organs so she could pay him for losing his job.
According to police, Tamotsu Aida, 23, got upset when his girlfriend did not wake him up one morning in July. After losing his job, he allegedly threatened her at their apartment in Edogawa Ward, Sankei Shimbun reported. The woman told police Aida became abusive and accused her of being responsible for losing his job. He demanded 1.5 million yen and told her to go to South Korea or China and sell some organs.
Police said the woman filed a criminal complaint after Aida took 80,000 yen from her. After that, he told her to drop the complaint, threatening that if she didn't, "many scary people will visit your parents’ house.”
