TIP: TIP YOUR CABBY
A Yellow Cab customer took a taxi from the
1300 block of Laurel to the 3900 block of East
23rd Street around 3:30 a.m. last Saturday.
The fare was $18, and the customer gave the
driver a $20 bill and asked for the change back.
This reportedly “angered the cab driver,” who
reversed the car as the alleged victim was getting
out and called the passengers “niggers.” One
was knocked to the ground by the reverse motion,
and the driver reportedly accelerated forward
trying to strike the man but missed. The man
and his witnesses went to call police.
A man told police he was robbed around 1:30
a.m. Saturday after taking a guy home from the
bar. He said the alleged suspect put him in
a choke hold, forced him up to the apartment
and continued to choke him out while demanding
money for the next hour and a half. At some
point, he said the strangulation caused him
to defecate on the kitchen floor. Police observed
evidence of this once inside the apartment,
but nothing except a change bowl was missing.
A strange hat and pack of smokes remained. Security
camera footage was collected.
The alleged victim called police from a house
near the 3700 block of Easton Boulevard after
he’d agreed to take a couple people from the
Hickman Apartments to “the east side to make
a bet.” The guys reportedly hit him over the
head with a sharpening stone they’d found in
the vehicle, forced him to the back seat and
threatened to tie him up as they proceeded to
the east side. So he jumped out of the vehicle,
and the alleged suspects continued northbound
with his vehicle and cell phone. CV
