Authorities: Taxi driver robbed by 2 armed men

Two armed men approached a taxi driver Tuesday morning and took his cash and personal property, according to authorities.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office 1st Lt. Chris Dale said it happened around 12:30 a.m. on Dunlap Street near Georgia Avenue in Gainesville.

Dale said two unidentified black men produced weapons and struck the driver. The men ran away and have not been caught, Dale said.

“It’s my understanding that at least one of the subjects brandished a handgun and that the cab was called there to pick them up,” Dale said.

Dale did not release any further information on the case. It has been turned over to the criminal investigations division.
