A man who almost daily withdrew cash from a bank for a pachinko parlor was beaten and stabbed by four men Friday morning after he took out almost 70 million yen, but his assailants fled without the cash, police said.

Kazuhiko Kimura, who works for a wholesale company that sells the prizes pachinko parlors offer their customers, was stabbed in the chest and abdomen seven times immediately after withdrawing 69.92 million yen from a pachinko parlor’s bank account at Asahi Bank’s Waseda branch in Shinjuku Ward.
