ATLANTA — “A string of taxi cab robberies in metro Atlanta has cabbies concerned and on high alert.
The president of the Atlanta Taxi Cab Industry Association said Atlanta police told him eight cab drivers were robbed in the city of Atlanta within 24 hours this weekend alone. Channel 2 has confirmed at least one more in DeKalb County and another beating and robbery of a driver in Clayton County. The robberies are said to be unrelated.
“It’s a new phenomenon because we haven’t had it that much within a short period of time, and it’s a cause for us to be worried,” said Luke Azubuike of the Taxi Cab Industry Association.” – from WSBTV
