Two felons were arrested after allegedly robbing a man at gunpoint Wednesday, according to a Columbus police report.

XaZaiver Williams, 34, and Erica Fortson, 32, are accused of robbing a cab driver around 1 p.m. on the 6000 block of Georgetown Drive, pointing a pistol into the victim's right side.

Both Williams and Fortson were charged with armed robbery and kidnapping and arrested at the scene. In addition, both were charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Williams was arrested earlier this summer for intent to distribute cocaine.
