POLICE attached to Monaro Local Area Command are appealing for the assistance of the public for information after a taxi driver was robbed at Queanbeyan last night.
About 9pm (Monday 27 October 2014), a 28-year-old taxi driver picked up a passenger from Bunda Street, Canberra and asked the driver to take him to Queanbeyan.
As the driver stopped the car near a tennis court in Campbell Street, the passenger left the taxi. The driver followed him and was approached by two other men.
The males threatened him and grabbed his arms. The three men returned to the taxi and removed and took cash. The trio left the area on foot through a nearby park and the taxi driver reported the incident to police.
The taxi driver was not injured.

The second man is also aged in his early to mid 20s, Caucasian appearance, about 173cm tall with a medium build. He has short light brown hair. He was wearing light coloured shorts and T-shirt.
The third man was not described.
