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, â€œI didn’t really care where I could go, but never dreamed I’d end up where I did.â€
But perhaps to save Yamada-san some embarrassment, one police officer generously suggested that he may have targeted the nearby Japan Railways office, as â€œour uniforms look pretty similar to those used by JR, so he probably got us mixed up.â€
