FUKUOKA, Japan (NBC/NTV) - Driving a taxi can be a dangerous job -- even in a safe country like Japan.
Footage from a security camera inside a taxi taken Tuesday in western Japan shows a man trying to rob a driver.
The man grabs the driver's face and threatens him with a box cutter, but the driver resists. He bites the man's fingers and escapes.
The driver then blocks the door to prevent the would-be robber from fleeing and calls the police.
Police say the 29-year-old suspect told them he needed money.
They say he had only about 6 cents on him.
