Police are looking for a man in his 30s who robbed a 51-year-old cab driver at gunpoint yesterday afternoon in Halawa.

The robber also made off with the cab, which was later found nearby.

Police said the cab driver picked up the man in town.

When they arrived at a Halawa address just before 3 p.m., the man pointed a gray handgun at the driver, demanded his wallet and told him to get out of the van.

The driver complied, and the man then took the van and $100 in cash, police said.

Police later recovered the van, unoccupied, a few blocks away. 

The driver was uninjured, police said.

The suspect remained at large as of 8:30 p.m.
