The Regina Police Service is asking for information from the public that may assist in the investigation into a robbery of a taxicab operator, which occurred last night.
On Tuesday, November 26, 2019, at about 10:41 p.m., police were dispatched to the 4200 block of Dewdney Avenue for a report of a robbery. Preliminary investigation indicates a taxicab driver had transported an adult male and adult female from the 1300 block of Athol Street to a restaurant in the 4200 block of Dewdney Avenue. When the driver asked for payment, the male suspect handed him some money. When the driver went to make change, he realized the male suspect had grabbed a pouch in which the driver kept all of his money. The driver got the pouch back, but it was missing all the money. When he got out of his cab and challenged the suspects, the male suspect pushed him to the ground. The two suspects fled on foot. The victim sustained minor injuries.
The male suspect is described as being 25-30 years old, about 5’ 6” to 5’ 7” tall, thin build, short hair, wearing a black hoodie and jeans. The female suspect was described as being about 5’ 2” or 5’ 3” tall, thin build and long hair. She was wearing a jacket. Investigation into this matter is ongoing.
Anyone who may have information that could help in this investigation is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). The Regina Police Service thanks the public and media for their assistance in this matter.
