Police said Saturday said that a 34-year-old police officer has been arrested for robbing the apartment of a woman in Kawaguchi, Saitama Prefecture.
According to police, the officer, identified as Kosuke Furuya, broke into the 33-year-old woman's second-floor apartment at around 10:45 p.m. on Friday, the Saitama Shimbun reported.
Police said the woman, who wasn't home at the time, was an acquaintance of the officer.
Furuya left the woman's apartment by jumping from the balcony. A man who lived below heard Furuya land outside his apartment. He called 110, then gave chase and subdued Furuya who had fallen over. When he was arrested, Furuya had the woman's bank passbook on him.
