Taxi robbery ringleader awaits Japanese trial

Date Posted: 2008-05-02

A 22-year-old Air Force security policeman who conspired with four teenagers to attack and rob a taxi driver in Okinawa City is now in Japanese custody, awaiting the Naha District Court to set a trial date.

Airman First Class Darius Antowann Brunson is charged by Japanese authorities with both assault and robbery in an incident when a 55-year-old taxi driver was robbed and beaten in an Okinawa City entertainment area. The driver was robbed of •6,000 and other goods totaling nearly •4,000 more. Brunson, police say, didnít actually strike the driver, but instead, was the group leader who drove the car taking the teens away from the scene.

Brunson, assigned to the 18th Security Forces Squadron at Kadena Air Base, is charged with leading the four teenage dependents of military service members, ages 15~19, into the robbery attempt. Police say Brunson had plotted the robbery with them at his home on Kadena.
