A Columbus cab driver told police he was robbed at gunpoint Saturday night.
According to the police report, the incident occurred at 9:52 p.m. at the intersection of Connor Road and Cusseta Road.
A police officer was flagged down by the cab driver, who told him "I just got robbed. Two guys just robbed me."
The 25-year-old man, a Columbus resident who drives for City Cab, told police he was driving his cab south on Connor Road and while he was stopped at a stop sign an unknown black male approached him on the driver side and asked him, "how much will you charge me to take me to Wilson Apartments."
Never miss a local story.
The driver told the man he wasn't sure.
He began to tell the man he was going to check but before he could finish his sentence another black male stepped out from behind a concrete pillar, leaned into the front passenger window and put a pistol to the right side of his head.
The driver told police the man told him to "go to your pocket, give it up."
The driver told police he reached into his right front pants pocket and took out about $50.
The man on the driver's side of the vehicle grabbed the money and the two men ran east along Cusseta Road.
The driver described one man as having short, dreadlocks. He was wearing a white shirt and dark shorts.
The second man also had short dreadlocks. He was wearing a dark hoodie and jeans.
The driver said he saw no other suspects.
Police sent out a description of the suspects to all south-end units.
Fort Benning was also informed since Cusseta Road comes to a dead end less than 200 feet from the scene in the same direction the two men ran.
The case is still under investigation.
The driver, who asked that his name not be used, said on Sunday that he has been robbed at gunpoint before but it was in Miami while he was on vacation.
It was just Sept. 23 that a cab driver Byron Keith Brown was shot to death in his cab.
That happened on the corner of Shelby Street and Munson Drive. That was also at a stop sign.
The driver said that incident did go through his mind Saturday when the man pulled the gun.
He said it was a scary moment.
