It was the kind of crime that had been happening around the city lately — robberies targeting Japanese-run businesses. On January 2, 1942, Japanese confectionery stores on East Cordova and Hawks Avenue were robbed within a few minutes of each other. Three days later, The Sun reported that a window was broken at the confectionery store of E. Kariya at 595 Richards and a slab of wood was thrown at and smashed the window of the Jubilee Grocery at 3302 West Broadway. Then, on Friday, January 16, at 8:30 p.m., a tall, skinny man and two friends approached the Uno family confectionery store on the northwest corner of 4th and Alberta.
