WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are searching for a man they say robbed a Wilmington cab driver at gunpoint early this morning, just as he pulled into the Creekwood community to drop the man off.

Wilmington Police say just before 1 a.m., dispatchers got the call reporting the crime in the 800 block of N. 30th Street. They told officers it all started when a Kat’s Taxi driver told them he picked a man up from Russell’s Quick Stop in the 2100 block of Wrightsville Avenue.

When the driver pulled into the Creekwood community, that’s when they say the man pulled out a black revolver, threatening him and demanding cash and his cell phone. The driver told officers the man then took off running.

There’s no word on what the man got away with, but police say the cab driver was not hurt during the robbery.
