Man robs mother of 1,000 yen, threatens kids with flower pot, flees without cash (newsonjapan)
The mother was returning home from shopping when a man suddenly opened the rear door of her car. Holding a shard from a broken flower pot, he directed his threat towards the child seated in the back and demanded money by saying, “Give me your money.”
The woman handed over 1,000 yen to the man in cash. Surprisingly, the assailant expressed dissatisfaction, stating, “This is bad,” and left the money on the passenger seat before making his escape on a bicycle.
Fortunately, neither the mother nor her two children in the back seat sustained any injuries.
The man who fled is described as having short black hair, standing around 170 cm tall, having a slim build, and wearing a black T-shirt and pants.
