At around 11:15 a.m. on January 25, Masao Fuse, of no known occupation, thrust the scissors — with 7.5 centimeter-long blades — at an officer, 23, stationed at the box.
After he was apprehended at the scene, Fuse was accused of interfering with the duties of a public servant. “I wanted to rob a convenience store,” Fuse was quoted by police. “So I thought a gun was a necessary. Theft was my intention.”
Police are now investigating whether to change the charges against the suspect to attempted robbery.
