Super Mario Brothers Rob Taxi Driver (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Super Mario's not so super anymore.

Cops are searching for four men -- two of them dressed as Super Mario and his green-clad brother Luigi -- caught on tape beating and robbing a cab driver on Staten Island.

Police say the trouble started when one of the criminal characters tried stealing money out of the driver's pocket around 4 a.m. on November 1st.

The cab driver pulled over at a gas station and asked the men to pay and leave. Instead the men assaulted him and wrenched away his cash.

A third man dressed in a tuxedo reportedly acted as a lookout as the plumbers got physical with the cabbie.

Anyone who recognizes the "brothers" or has any information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS or log onto www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
