Driver offers ride, gets mugged by couple in black hoodies

A black man and a white woman, both in their 20s and wearing black hoodies, are suspects in a knifepoint robbery that happened early Saturday, according to Buffalo police.

A driver told officers that, when he gave the couple a lift, they used a knife to force him to pull over on Delaware Avenue near Allen Street about 12:20 a.m. Saturday. The man said they both punched him repeatedly in the face and stole $200 cash and a $500 cellphone.

The victim was unable to tell officers the direction in which the two fled from his car. Officials said the suspects are being sought on felony robbery and assault and harassment counts.
