Vampires, ninja mug taxi driver in Germany: police
Two men dressed as vampires and one decked out as a ninja fighter robbed and threatened a taxi driver during Halloween night, German police said on Monday.
The costumed trio hailed the cab at around 3:00 am local time (0200 GMT) in the western German town of Bergheim and jumped the 38-year-old driver, stealing his wallet before disappearing into the night.
Calling for witnesses, police said in a statement: "The driver described the perpetrators as follows: The 'vampires' were wearing dark cloaks and white shirts, with blanched faces and red lips."
"The 'ninja' was wearing a black 'kung fu' outfit and a headband," police said.
