Video: Cab driver robbed at gunpoint in Newport News

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) -- Newport News police say they are looking for several men who robbed a cab driver at gunpoint last weekend.

The robbery happened the morning of Saturday, Dec. 3.

Police say the driver was waiting on Taylor Avenue to pick up a fare when one man opened the rear driver's side door and pointed a gun. Another man armed with a gun entered the other side of the taxi. Both men reportedly began yelling at the driver to "give up the money."

Dash cam video from inside the cab shows the terrifying moments when the suspects enter the cab, and point handguns at the driver's head. The video shows one of the men grab the cab driver's cellphone and charger.

Police say the men also took the driver's personal property from the trunk before fleeing the scene.

Police released images of the suspects on Tuesday.

Call the Crime Line if you recognize these men.
