At approximately 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, emergency services received a tip about a vehicle on fire in a parking lot in Kumagawa City. Fire fighters arriving at the scene quickly extinguished the blaze. The car, which is owned by the boss of the gang, was left with severe burn marks on its hood.
Shortly thereafter, police discovered a shattered front window and burned wall and floor at the gang’s office in Gyoda City, which is located about six kilomters away from the parking lot.
Police suspect that both incidents are the result of thrown Molotov cocktails. There were no reports of injuries in either attack.
