Cab driver fleeced at knifepoint by two crooks in the Mission

A cab driver was completely fleeced at knifepoint by two passengers in the Mission early Tuesday morning, police said.

The two passengers, a man and woman in their 30s, were reportedly sitting in the cab at the intersection of 15th and Potrero streets about 1:30 a.m. when the female suspect brandished a knife and took the cab driver's property, police said. Both suspects fled the scene on foot.

The crooks reportedly made off with the 31-year-old male victim's cellphone, cash, jacket, taxi camera, taxi computer and credit card, police said.

No arrests have been made.
