SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say a cab driver was shot and wounded Tuesday night during an armed robbery that happened late Tuesday night in Salisbury.
Detectives with the Wicomico Bureau of Investigation said that shortly before 10:30 p.m., a driver for Bailey's Taxi Service picked up a fare of three people and transported them to the area of Patrick and Keene avenue. Investigators said that while at this location, the cab driver was robbed of his iPad II, cellphone and cash. The three suspects then got out of the cab and ran toward Patrick Avenue.
According to detectives, the cab driver followed the suspects in his taxi at which time one of the suspects fired shots at the taxi, striking the car twice. One shot pierced the driver's side door of the taxi. As a result, the cab driver received a grazing wound to his lower leg. Investigators said the driver did require treatment at the hospital.
The victim described the three suspects to detectives as follows:
Black male, dark complexion, thin build, between 19 and 23 years of age, 6-foot-0 and 190 pounds.
Black male, dark complexion, stocky build, 5-foot-10 and 235 pounds.
Black male, light skin, acne marks on face, 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds.
Anyone with additional information about this incident is asked to contact the WBI at (410) 548-4898 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.
