CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Authorities say a customer robbed a taxi driver near Sissonville and made off with about $100 in cash.
The Huntington-based driver called Kanawha Metro 911 just after 1 p.m. Tuesday to report the incident, said Cpl. Brian Humphreys, Kanawha Sheriff's spokesman. Humphreys had limited information about the robbery Tuesday afternoon.
The driver told dispatchers a passenger asked him to stop at the Edens Fork park and ride just off Interstate 77 in Sissonville, but that the passenger then acted as if he had a weapon and robbed him, Humphreys said.
No weapon was displayed, but the passenger made off with about $100 cash.
The suspect was described as a shirtless white man wearing blue jeans. He had multiple tattoos and was last seen walking with a white woman in a yellow shirt along Kanawha Two-Mile Road.
Anyone with information can contact the Kanawha Sheriff's Department at 304-357-0169.
