In a phenomenally acute case of comical incompetency, a knife-wielding criminal was arrested in Fukushima on Monday after unsuccessfully trying to hold up a police office.
Yoshimasa Yamada charged into the building and demanded money, only to find himself surrounded by policemen. Resulting in his prompt and ignominious arrest.
Unsurprisingly the 26-year-old robber has admitted to the allegations, and made no attempt to disguise his stupidity by saying, “I didn’t really care where I could go, but never dreamed I’d end up where I did.”
But perhaps to save Yamada-san some embarrassment, one police officer generously suggested that he may have targeted the nearby Japan Railways office, as “our uniforms look pretty similar to those used by JR, so he probably got us mixed up.”
