Costumed Mario and Luigi Rob Cab Driver
This Halloween Mario and Luigi were not the hero’s of the night. According to Eyewitness News four men wearing costumes in Staten Island robbed a cab driver on Halloween night. This story is still being circulated as the bandits are still on the loose. The two of the four men were dressed as Mario and Luigi. They were riding the cab in New Dorp. One of the suspects apparently tried to take cash out of the cab driver’s pocket. The driver is 48 years old.
The driver stopped at the gas station and asked the four men to remove themselves from his cab. This station was on Arthur Kill Road. When the driver stopped the cab and asked the men to get out, they dragged him from the cab, beat him and then stole his money.
Police are looking for any information from Halloween night. They are hoping anyone in the area could provide leads as to which way the suspects went and if they took off their masks. Eyewitness News is happy to field calls for information to help the police. Anyone who may have seen two men in a Mario costume and Luigi costume, with two other men are encouraged to report it.
