California cab driver thrown in trunk after pickup
PITTSBURG, Calif. -- Authorities say a cab driver was robbed at gunpoint and then thrown into the trunk of his cab and driven around by three people he picked up from the Pittsburg-Bay Point Bay Area Rapid Transit Station.
The suspects apparently asked the driver to take them to an apartment complex in Antioch on Thursday night. But authorities say they then robbed him of money, jewelry and a cell phone and forced him into the cab's trunk.
The driver was eventually dropped off in Oakland. He was not injured.
Police are looking for the yellow cab, a Ford Crown Victoria emblazoned with the words, "Antioch Pittsburg," and the number "36."
