The manager of a convenience store in Osaka has been arrested for robbing another convenience store in Osaka, police said Friday.
According to police, Seiji Yoshida, 33, who is the manager of a Circle K Sunkus store in Sumiyoshi Ward, entered a Lawson convenience store about 800 meters away from his store at 6:45 a.m. last Sept 14 and threatened an employee with scissors, Fuji TV reported. Yoshida demanded money but the employee resisted, so he fled.
Police said Yoshida then went back to his store where he started his work shift as normal.
Police started circulating a photo taken from the Lawson store surveillance camera footage and received several tips from local residents saying the suspect resembled the manager of the Sunkus store.
Yoshida has admitted to the attempted robbery, police said.© Japan Today
