Police in Koshigaya, Saitama Prefecture, said Friday they have arrested a 24-year-old woman on suspicion of robbing a DVD and CD rental store on Dec 24.
Police said the woman, Misana Koyama, has admitted to the charge and quoted her as saying she needed the money for a date with her boyfriend on Christmas Eve.
According to police, Koyama entered the store — where she used to work part-time — at around 5 a.m. on Dec 24, Sankei Shimbun reported. She threatened the 41-year-old male employee with a knife and demanded money from the cash register. She then fled with about 125,000 yen.
Police said Koyama was identified through store surveillance camera footage.© Japan Today
