INDIANAPOLIS - Police have identified one juvenile and one adult suspected in the armed robbery of a cab driver Sunday night.
Police said Jeffery Carruthers is the adult suspect wanted for questioning.
Video from a security camera inside the taxi helped police positively identify the suspects.
The footage shows one of the suspects holding a silver semi-automatic handgun to the driver's neck during the robbery, which occurred at 10:30 p.m. Sunday in the 1200 block of North Pershing Avenue on the city's west side.
While the one suspect held the gun to the driver, the other suspect exited the cab, opened the driver's door and began taking items from the driver's pockets.
Charges are pending.
Yellow Cab has offered a $5,000 reward for the capture of the two suspects.
Anyone with information about the incident or the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
