Cabbie flees from his vehicle after gunpoint robbery attempt

Two young men pulled out a gun and demanded a taxi driver’s money before he jumped out of the cab and ran to a nearby gas station early Monday morning, Ferry-Fillmore District police reported.

The incident started at about 4 a.m. Monday, when the two men entered the Liberty Yellow Cab taxi on Kilhoffer Street, near East Ferry Street and Bailey Avenue, and asked to be taken to a Seneca Street location, authorities said. The police report provided no indication of whether any money was taken.

Police are attempting to find the suspects through the information available from the ordering of the cab.
