A 21-year-old university student, who has been arrested for robbing a convenience store in Tokyo’s Suginami Ward last month, told police he wanted to go to prison because he was worried about his future.
According to police, Yuya Yoshikawa surrendered at a koban (police box) in Omiya, Saitama Prefecture on Saturday, TBS reported. Yoshikawa, who resides in Kawaguchi, Saitama Prefecture, is suspected of threatening an employee of a convenience store in Suginami Ward with a knife and stealing approximately 22,000 yen in cash on Sept 30.
Yoshikawa was quoted by police as saying: “I was worried about my future but couldn’t kill myself, so I decided I'd be better off in prison."© Japan Today
