Gainesville police are looking for three men, in connection with a Tuesday robbery in the area of Westhaven Drive.

Police responded to a call at about 12:40 a.m. Tuesday in which a taxi driver said that he had been robbed by two black men and one Hispanic man.

The driver picked up the men at one location and was allegedly robbed at another location.

At the incident location, one of the suspects grabbed the victim and took his wallet which contained an undisclosed amount of money and was struck in the face, Gainesville police said.

The suspects then fled the scene on foot. The victim suffered minor injuries during the incident, but no weapon was ever displayed, officials said.

The suspects are described as being in their early- to mid-20s.
