HIROSHIMA (TR) – Hiroshima Prefectural Police are hunting for a man who attempted to rob a convenience store in Mihara City early Friday, reports (Oct. 4).
At just past 2:00 a.m., the perpetrator entered the store and thrust a knife before the 63-year-old male manager. “Hand over the money,” he reportedly said.
After the clerk declined the request, the perpetrator bashed him in the head with a crow-bar before fleeing the scene empty-handed.
There were no customers in the store at the time.
Believed to be in his 40s or 50s, the perpetrator was dressed in black work clothes, a camouflage cap and a breathing mask.
Police are seeking the whereabouts of the man on suspicion of robbery resulting in injury.
