According to police, on Saturday, February 28th, 2015 at approximately 8:30 pm a Welland Taxi was parked at a taxi stand on East Main Street.  A male approached the taxi asking the driver if he was available to take him to King Street.  The driver told the male that he was in service and the male got into the taxi and the driver took him to King Street where the male directed the driver to go around to the back parking lot.  The male then directed the taxi driver to put all his money into a back pack.  The driver told the male that it was the other way around and the male produced a handgun.  The taxi driver started to drive the taxi and the male opened the door and got out of the taxi and was last seen running towards the canal.
