Men Diguised as Mario and Luigi Rob Cab Driver

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 43 comments

Sadly, this is not about Grand Theft Auto: Mushroom Kingdom Wars.

Mario and Luigi are now wanted for assault and robbery.

At around 4 a.m. on November 1, presumably following a Halloween party, a Staten Island cab driver was assaulted and robbed by four men. It being Halloween, it may have been difficult for the victim to describe the assailants, but two of the men were wearing unmistakable costumes – Mario and Luigi.

A surveillance video, which can be viewed on the NYDailyNews, shows two men dressed as Mario and Luigi wrestling a cabbie for his cash while a third man dressed in a tuxedo stood watch.

Anyone who recognizes the brothers' criminal lookalikes or their cohorts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS or log onto www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or text 274637 then enter TIP577.

    Don't you people get it, this is all part of Wario and Waluigi's plan to ruin the sames of the new Mario Bros game.

    1. it IS tech related. It was caught on CAMERA
    2. it IS funny, however they never said it was funny. They actually gave a contact site/number in case we have info. It was kids dressed as Mario and Luigi, so this is a great place to post for any leads seeing as they were possibly tech-heads.
    3. time to change your feminine hygiene product

    chaohsiangchenYou people in editorial board of THG should be fired. 1. This is not tech related news.2. This is not funny.Cab drivers in the US risk their lives day in and day out to make a living, yet they are denied their second amendment rights by white collar thugs in city halls. Beaten by four thugs disguised as party goer is bad enough, and your lack of sympathy disgust me even more.


    Jeeze who let this guy in the forum.... must be a cab driver...

    Well judging by their actions does this mean this is a parallel dimention? So that means Bowser is nice and Toad is straight?
