The male suspect reportedly told the cab driver to take him to the Omni hotel where, upon arrival, he asked the driver to return back to Fourth and Commerce.

The man got out of the cab, walked to a parked white Nissan Pathfinder, and returned to the cab with a woman, according to police.

The couple then got into the backseat when the man allegedly held a gun to the driver’s ribs and demanded money. The couple then fled the cab, got into the Pathfinder and drove away.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
