Police said Wednesday they have arrested two men in Tokyo's Toshima Ward on suspicion of robbery and murder after a 75-year-old video arcade owner was found dead last week.
According to a Sankei Shimbun report, the two men, aged 22 and 21, entered the games arcade in the basement of a multi-tenant building early in the morning on Sept 19. They were caught on security cameras using a key that belonged to the victim, Akira Suzuki, to open a change machine from which it is believed they stole at least 100,000 yen. Security footage showed that the men were regular customers at the arcade.
Police were quoted as saying that the pair had confessed to the robbery and murder.© Japan Today
