Police say the cab driver picked up the man on the south end of St. Joseph around 4 a.m. Tuesday morning and dropped him off near 16th Street and Messanie Street.
That is when the man demanded money and allegedly put an object to the man's stomach and pretended to have a gun. The cab never actually saw a gun, but he did give the man his money.
