Fukuoka’s Fearless Duo Foils Handbag Heist!

On the night of April 26th in Fukuoka City, a purse-snatcher targeted a woman returning home. What seemed like an easy score quickly turned sour for the thief when the courageous victim shouted “Thief!”, alerting nearby passersby to the crime. A fearless duo – a 31-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman – sprang into action, chasing the suspect. Like a scene from a crime drama, they apprehended the would-be criminal, foiling his plans and returning the stolen handbag, which contained a hefty 550,000 yen, to its rightful owner. The culprit, a 48-year-old unemployed man without a fixed address, has admitted to the crime. Fukuoka City residents can be proud of these valiant citizens who fearlessly jumped into action.
