Police said Tuesday they have arrested two Russian women for refusing to pay their taxi fare and then assaulting the driver after he chased them in Tokyo.
Fuji TV reported that the two women -- in their 30s -- got into the taxi on Monday afternoon in the Hiroo area and asked to be taken to Roppongi. Police said that when they arrived in Roppongi, they got out of the taxi without paying the 1,500 yen fare. The driver ran after them at which point one of the women hit him about 10 times with an umbrella. Police officers, who were nearby, apprehended the women.
The two women have denied the charges, police said.© Japan Today
