AICHI (TR) – Following the robbery of a convenience store in Inazawa City on Tuesday by three masked men, Aichi Prefectural Police are seeking the help of the public in locating suspects in the crime, reports Nippon News Network (Nov. 9).
On Wednesday, police released security camera footage showing three men in ski masks, one of whom is shown wielding a crowbar, inside an outlet of 7-Eleven near JR Inazawa Station. “I don’t want to kill anyone,” one of the suspects told a cashier. “Hand over cash.”
After taking 400,000 yen in cash, the men fled the scene.
About 30 minutes before the incident, three men wearing similar masks attempted to rob a convenience store in the town of Toyoyama, located about eight kilometers away.
Believed to be aged in their 20s, the men stand between 165 centimeters and 175 centimeters in height.
