Cab driver robbed
Quincy police are looking for a man accused of robbing a cab driver in Quincy.

According to police, the cab driver picked up the suspect, described as a 23- or 24-year-old white man who was wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt, near Boston College shortly before 4 a.m. last Saturday.

The cab driver took the suspect to Euclid Avenue in Quincy, police said. When the cab driver told the suspect the fare was $66, the suspect got out of the car and allegedly put a knife to the back of the cab driver’s neck.

The suspect demanded money, and the cab driver gave him the cash he had in his vehicle, police said.

When officers arrived on scene, they found a fork next to the cab and took it in as evidence. Police are still looking for suspects.
