A man armed with a kitchen knife entered a bank in Munakata city, Fukuoka Prefecture, on Nov 2. Upon seeing the man, the clerk asked “What can I do for you?”
“Hand over the money,” he said quietly.
Then the clerk summoned all her years of training and experience as a bank employee and dealt with the intruder the best way she knew how. She asked him to take a seat on the couch and wait. The man politely agreed and took a seat.
After 10 minutes of waiting, he got tired of holding the knife and put it away in his bag. Just then, police rushed in and apprehended the man.
The 38-year-old was arrested for attempted robbery – really, really slow attempted robbery.
“I wanted to rob a bank, so I got a knife from the kitchen” he said, admitting his guilt. Source: News24 (Japanese)© RocketNews24
