Robber dressed up as Winnie the Pooh

Police in Tokyo, Japan have arrested a man dressed as Winnie the Pooh for beating up people who stared at him and then robbing them of their money. The man named Masayuki Ishikawa, told to the police in a statement that he robbed the two people because they stared at him and he disapproved of their actions. This incident took place at midnight when Masayuki Ishikawa (dressed up as Winnie the Pooh) was accompanied by 2 of his other friends dressed as s a mouse and a panther.

The reason Masayuki Ishikawa gave for his wearing such attire in the middle of the night was that he had run out of clean clothes to wear. Ishikawa and his two friends beat up 2 people plus stole 160 dollars from them. This is one piece of news that Winnie the Pooh would like to distance himself from.
