This Week in Crime: Taxi Driver Robbed

And, no we don't mean how DeNiro got snubbed by the Oscars. This happened on Wednesday in Tall Oaks Village Center.

A 56-year-old Harpers Ferry, West Virginia man driving a taxi was robbed by his passengers on Wednesday, April 29 around 9 p.m. The driver was dropping off two men in a shopping center parking lot at 12024 North Shore Drive in the Reston area. One man produced a gun and demanded money. The victim handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the victims fled. There were no injuries.

The suspects are described as black males and around 20 years old.
We'll spare everyone the "you talkin' to me?" jokes and just move on.


  1. That's terrible that it happened. That's a very quiet neighborhood. What's more, I'd hate to think the guy had to drive all the way back to West Virginia after being robbed in Reston.
