Date Posted: 2008-03-21

Okinawa City Police, who have asked for assistance from the U.S. military, are still looking for three men who robbed and assaulted a local taxi driver early Monday.

The 55-year-old driver said he was accosted by three men about 300 meters from a Kadena Air Base gate, beaten on the head and robbed of •8,000. The driver fled, and when he returned to the taxi his money was gone. He told police one man looked African-American, while the other two had Asian features. The driver told police the men spoke English to him.

While the incident occurred shortly after midnight, police say the robbery and assault wasnít reported until about 6:45 a.m. The taxi company filed the report after the driver was reluctant to do so, saying he didnít want to get into any trouble with American authorities.
