Police have arrested a Russian man who smashed the glass on a koban (police box) in Tokyo's Shinagawa Ward.
The suspect was quoted by police as saying he was broke and thought he would be deported back to Russia if he committed a crime, TV Asahi reported Saturday.
According to police, the 35-year-old Russian, who has no fixed address or job, threw a tool at the glass window of the koban just after noon on Dec 4. Police said he only had 8 yen on him when he was arrested.
The Russian told police he had lost his job at a bar about a week ago and had been sleeping in the terminal at Haneda Airport since then.© Japan Today
