Late Night Robbery of Taxi Driver

A taxi driver was flagged down by two males last night at about 11:35 pm on Baldwin Avenue south of Duarte Road.  The males entered the cab and directed the driver to the rear of businesses east of Baldwin.  One of the suspects pointed a revolver at the taxi driver demanding his money and the keys to the taxi.  The driver complied and then was told to get out of the taxi by the suspects.  The driver fled the taxi on foot, leaving the suspects in the vehicle.  A few moments later, a witness saw the suspects walk away from the taxi, eastbound on Naomi Avenue toward Lovell Avenue.  The driver was not harmed and the loss was only cash.
The suspects were both described as male Hispanics, 17-20 years old, wearing dark clothing.  One suspect was tall and "skinny", about 6'-05", wearing a black beanie and gloves.  The second suspect was approximately 5'-05", also "skinny", wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with information is asked to call Arcadia Police Detectives at 626-574-5160.  You can also submit crime tips and information via text, phone, or web to LA Regional Crime Stoppers, 800-222-TIPS (8477), or by clicking on the "Submit a Tip" button on the APD Blog side bar.
