Two cab drivers robbed in Wilmington

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Wilmington, NC (WWAY) — Every day cab companies across Wilmington receive hundreds of phone calls. Wednesday night two cab companies received calls that are every driver’s worst nightmare

Around eleven at night a driver for Kat’s Taxi was dispatched to pick up a fare on Market Street. When he got there the passenger pulled a gun on the driver and demanded money before running off. Police believe five hours later the same person robbed a driver from Yellow Cab on Ann Street.

The crimes have cab drivers around Wilmington on edge.

“I think more cabbies need to arm themselves, because the city is getting way too dangerous” said taxi driver James Gallagher. “All it would take is one cab driver to defend themselves to stop this nonsense.”

“Police need to patrol more in certain areas, not just down on front and Market Street” said cab driver James Allen. “They need to be on second, third and a little bit further out where people are walking home. That’s where we are getting robbed at.”

Wilmington police do have a suspect in the armed robbery of the two cab drivers on Wednesday morning, but are withholding a description of the man at this time.
