Date Posted: 2009-10-15

A taxi robbery and an unsuccessful attempt of another took place near Kokusai Street over the weekend, with one netting the thieves money, while a second attempt only 40 meters away was unsuccessful.

First, three men described by witnesses as foreigners approached a taxi parked at an Okiei Street taxi stand near Kokusai Street in Naha, entering the empty car. The robbers took the money from the driverís change box, then fled the scene. Witnesses say two men were about 185cm tall, and the third about 175cm tall.

Only minutes later, and only 40 meters from the scene of the first taxi theft, two men tried to grab money from another taxi. The driver was walking back to his taxi and spotted the theft in progress. He shouted at them, scaring the men into dropping the cashbox and fleeing. Naha City Police are investigating.
