An Akron taxi driver was the target of two robbers early this morning
Shortly before 4am a cab driver told police he was robbed in the 800 block of McKinley Avenue. The "Go 2 Go Taxi" driver reported a woman walked over to the cab and asked for help putting her belongings inside the taxi.. As the driver attempted to help, a man approached the driver from behind and placed an ax handle in his back. The man also had one hand in his pocket, as if he had a gun, and demanded the driver’s money. The woman then got into the cab and took the driver’s fare money and the company phone. The suspects fled. The cab driver drove to East Market Street and called police.
The first suspects is a white female, about 30 years old, 5’06” – 5’07”, 180 – 190 lbs., possibly wearing a brown wig and long rain coat. The second suspect is a white male, 20 – 25 years old, 5’08”, 160 lbs., wearing a red, white and grey hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Akron Police Department.
