URGENT - Police are requesting your help

Detectives from the Major Crime Unit are appealing to the public to assist in the identification of an armed robber who held up a female cab driver at knife-point.

On Monday, November 5 at approximately 6:00 a.m. Amey’s taxi #88 attended the Mac’s Milk located by the Red Lobster on Bath Rd to pick up a fare. A male, described as Caucasian, in his 20s or 30s, roughly 5’10” in height and wearing a hoodie or jacket with a hood, entered the rear seat of the cab directly behind the driver.
