A taxi driver was robbed in front of Eastmont Dr. early Monday morning after receiving a call for a pickup.
An employee of the Acapulco Taxi Service took a call at 12:20 a.m. from a male in need of a ride.
Upon arriving at the scene at 12:29 a.m., two men ran up to his vehicle, one on each side, and demanded money.
The person on the driver's side was identified as a black male, short in size, dressed in all black with his T-shirt pulled up to cover his face.
The subject pointed a hand gun at the victim and demanded money from the taxi driver, who then handed over cash.
The second subject was also dressed in all black with a T-shirt covering his face, and reached into the taxi for a cell phone.
After all the items were taken, the driver ran to a fire department across the street and contacted the police.
Both suspects fled the scene.
