A woman was nearly robbed in Remington after taking a ride from an illegal taxi.
According a police report, at 12:50 a.m. on Sept. 18 a woman caught a “hack,” or an illegal cab, in the 500 block of W. 28th Street and told the driver she wanted to go to Columbia.
That’s when the driver stopped and told her: “I’m not taking you all the way to Columbia. Give me all your money or I’m gonna shank you.”
The driver then pulled out a knife and the woman jumped out of the car and the hack drove south on Sisson in a blue minivan.
