Police on Sunday arrested two 17-year-old youths for allegedly assaulting and robbing two people in Sakai City and Osaka in October. The suspects wore Spider-Man masks at the time of the robberies.
The two, who cannot be named because they are minors, were arrested for allegedly assaulting a 62-year-old man with wooden sword and stun gun in Sakai City around 9:30 p.m. on Oct 12. They stole 2,000 yen from him. The suspects also assaulted another 23-year-old college student at 10:55 p.m. in Osaka the same day but didn't steal any money, according to police. Police found their fingerprints on the wooden sword.
The suspects have admitted to the allegations. Police believe they were involved in six other similar cases reported the same day.© Japan Today
