Cab driver robbed in Youngstown



Published: Thu, February 6, 2014 @ 6:55 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A cab driver said a man with a gun robbed him of $40 about 5 a.m. today on the West Side.

The 30-year-old driver from Warren said in a police report he was called to a home in the 100 block of Wesley Avenue to pick up a fare. A young man got in the cab and asked to be driven to a store on Mahoning Avenue to buy cigarettes. When the fare went inside, however, he was denied a sale because he had no identification, reports said.

The fare then had the driver take him to Market Street, where he was able to buy a cigar and drive him back to Wesley Avenue.

When they arrived there, the fare pulled a gun and demanded the driver’s money, wallet and cellphone and ran out of the cab with the cash and phone. The driver then returned to the Mahoning Avenue store to report the robbery, reports said.
