[ARCHIVED] Police Investigate Attempted Armed Robbery of a Taxi Cab Driver

On September 2, 2014, around 11:40 P.M., a call came into the Emergency Communications Center for an attempted robbery to a cab driver in the 300 block of E. Little Creek Road. The cab driver advised he was responding to a call for a fare, when two unknown black males approached his car. One of the males broke out the driver side window, and the cab driver was able to drive away in his vehicle. The suspects then fired gunshots at the fleeing vehicle. The victim received non-life threatening injuries, as a result of the shattered glass. Detectives are currently investigating this incident.

The first suspect is described as being approximately 5’10”, athletic build, with shoulder length dreads, wearing a white t-shirt, dark pants, and a white cloth over this face.

The second suspect is described as being approximately 5’7”, tall with a stocky build, dark ball cap, wearing a white t-shirt, and dark pants.
