Two men robbed a food shop manager and employee carrying a plastic bag with about ¥2 million in cash at a bank Tuesday night, but dropped the bag in a street when they hit a cyclist as they ran away in Hirakata, Osaka Prefecture, police said.

The robbery took place at around 8:40 p.m. as the manager, 37, and one of his employees, 28, were trying to deposit the money into a night safe in the Hirakata branch of Kyoto Shinkin Bank.
