Binghamton Police Post Video of Persons of Interest in May Taxi Robbery
Binghamton Police are asking for help finding people who may have involved in the robbery of a Courtesy Cab driver on the West Side last month, posting video on the Binghamton Police Facebook page of three persons of interest.
Police say they want to talk to the three about the strong-armed robbery of a cab driver at Serrell and Cleveland Avenues near the Johnson City line early on May 22. Three males reportedly argued with the cab driver at around 3:14 a.m, put the driver in a choke hold and stole cash.
At the time, authorities described the robbery suspects as in their late teens, black, of medium height and build and all wearing dark sweats. The trio fled the area on foot, prompting police to canvass the neighborhood, knocking on doors and waking residents in the early morning hours.
Police got word the men were last seen near the Greyhound bus terminal and the video posted on Facebook shows three men near the downtown Intermodal Transportation bus station on Chenango Street.
Anyone with information is asked to call Binghamton Police Detectives at (607) 772-7080. (reference case 2019-20384)
