Suspects Arrested for Robbing Taxi Driver
A trio is arrested on Port Isabel after allegedly robbing a taxi driver at knife point.
Port Isabel police arrested 41 year-old Abundio Rivera Jr, 21 year-old Abundio Rivera III and 17 year-old Juan Cruz early Monday morning for robbing a taxi driver at knife point.
The victim told investigators he picked up the three men at a local sports bar and was told to drive them to an address nearby. When they arrived, police say, Rivera Jr., who was seating in the front seat, took out a knife and put it to the driver's neck and demanded money. The men took $115 dollars in cash and jumped out of the cab. The three men were later arrested at a home nearby and police did recover the weapon that was used and the money that was stolen.
