Two held in alleged robbery of taxi driver

By Star-Advertiser Staff

POSTED:



Police arrested a man and a woman in connection with the robbery of a taxi driver in Waikiki early yesterday morning.

 

The cab driver, 27, was parked in a taxi stall on Kanekapolei Street when he was approached by a man who asked how much it would cost to be taken to Waimanalo. When the driver said he had another fare waiting, the man began punching the cabbie, police said.

 

The attacker then pulled him out of the taxi and punched him again, police said. When the driver ran away from the cab, a female stepped into the taxi and began searching it.

 

An officer flagged down by the cabbie detained the two suspects and a search of the two turned up the taxi driver's cell phone.

 

A 30-year-old Makiki man and an 18-year-old Waimanalo woman were arrested and held in the Alapai Street cellblock pending charges of robbery and unauthorized entry.
