Posted: Updated:

Police say they are looking for a man who violently robbed a cab driver at knifepoint, and left her stranded in Brick.

They say it happened Saturday night around 10 p.m.

The Mantoloking taxi driver was taking a man to a nearby Wawa.

Officials say the man asked the driver to pull over to pick up a friend and when she did, he held what felt like a knife to her throat and demanded money and her car keys before running off.

Police describe the suspect as a black man between 25 and 35 with facial hair.
