2 nabbed for allegedly robbing cabbie

TWO men have been detained by police for allegedly robbing a taxi driver, Songjiang District police said yesterday.

The suspects, one surnamed Zhu and the other surnamed Huang, allegedly hailed the cab near the crossing of Husong Road and Qixin Road in Minhang District last Monday night, police said.

The two, one sitting beside the driver and the other in the back, told the driver surnamed Sheng to go to Sijing Town in Songjiang but when the taxi arrived in the town they said they were lost and asked the driver to stop so they could get their bearings.

The passenger sitting in the rear got out of the car and threatened Sheng with a knife through his window while his accomplice did likewise from the passenger seat.

Sheng was robbed of 500 yuan (US$73) and two cell phones. The suspects then took the car key and ran off.

The police said a street camera caught images of the suspects described by Sheng.

Zhu was caught in Meilong Town, Minhang District, and Huang was caught in Suixi County, Anhui Province.
