An unemployed man was arrested yesterday for attempting to rob a convenience store on January 25th.
Using a bit of common sense, 31-year-old Takashi Ishimitsu wisely decided to don a disguise before attempting the robbery. But rather than wearing a simple mask or balaclava, Ishimitsu-san got kitted out in a full monkey suit. An outfit that admittedly concealed his identity, but at the same time wasn’t exactly what you’d call inconspicuous.
And to add insult to injury, Ishimitsu-san left the store empty handed. Even though he was armed with a knife, his comedy outfit didn’t exactly instill fear in his victim. As the staff member on duty calmly alerted his manager, causing the costume clad culprit to flee.
