MBPD: Man robs cab driver at knife point

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Police in Myrtle Beach are searching for an alleged armed robber after he held a female cab driver at knife point and took her cash.

The female cab driver reports that she drove the male suspect, identified as "Patrick," after her cab company received his call around 9:20 p.m. at night. While in the cab, the man asked for her phone number and so he could get another ride, because he "likes older woman."

The police report states the man called her several more times during the night and texted a photo of himself. He also asked for photos of her before asking for a ride from the Bay View Hotel.

When they arrived at his destination, he said he would go inside to make change, but when the man returned he climbed in the passenger seat, held out a knife and demanded the driver's cash.

The man, wearing a hat, white hoodie and blue jeans, made off with $80 from the cab driver. The report states the cab driver provided the photo the man texted to her to police, but no hotel employees could identify him.

If you have any information about this man contact police as soon as possible.
