Knife-wielding thief in custody

Date Posted: 1999-10-08

Police have arrested a man believed to be responsible for an attempted robbery in Naha City Wednesday. Kazunori Kawamitsu, 26, and a resident of Gushi, Naha City, allegedly entered a store in Takara, Naha City, at about 7:45 a.m. and after pretending to be a customer pulled out a knife and pressed it against the neck of the 66-year-old shop owner, who was with his wife, 62, working in the shop at the time.

The elderly shop owner then handed 270,000 to Kawamitsu and before fleeing the suspect warned the couple not to leave the store for five minutes. Once the man was out of sight, the elderly couple contacted police, who after a short investigation arrested the suspect.
