Date Posted: 2008-07-31

An Uruma City taxi driver is happy to be alive, but not pleased he was ripped off by two men who stole ¥10,000 from his cab while he waited at a taxi stand.

It happened at 2 a.m. in Uruma City’s Midori Cho, when two men described as Far East Asian looking guys approached the taxi from two sides, brandishing knives. They didn’t speak, but gestured and pointed a knife at the driver.
