Picture from ThisisBeirut
I saw this post on AlienInBeirut and thought I alert both male and female readers of the blog. I advise women to take Banet Taxi, a women-only taxi, to be on the safe side and not worry about a thing.
NEWS: There is a gang of 3 males (1 driver and 2 supposed passangers) robbing and attacking passengers in a service/taxi in the Achrafieh/Sin el-Fil area of Beirut.
Almost everyone I know in Beirut knows of someone who this has happened to, many of victims were slashed as well. Some friends even said that a couple of the victims were sandwiched into the back seat between the two male passengers who held a knife to them. Sometimes they only rob, sometimes they rob and slash the victim with the knife.
Please keep vigilant when taking a service/taxi and circulate this news as knowledge is our best form of protection and prevention at the moment until they are caught.
As a general rule, never get into a service which has 2 male passengers in it.
I wish you censored the car’s license number. Unless he’s the ‘gang’ taxi driver, there’s no need to expose the car’s license.
If they knew that was the cab with this license number, they would have arrested him by now. It’s just an old picture from the internet 🙂
Never get into a service which has 2 males.
The driver could just fake that he is alone and get the accomplice down the road!!!
Shoo hal zakaa !!!
It’s actually widespread ,there hasn’t been an area i haven’t of this type of incidents ,Lebanon the safe haven
Does this also mean that companies such as charlies taxi/allo taxi are also considered to be one of those dangerous?
Just wondering if you are talking about ‘service’ and taxis or just ‘service’
Of course not. we are talking about “service” here.
I thought so. It’s this sentence in the article that I was trying to be sure of:
“Please keep vigilant when taking a service/taxi and circulate this news”
