A taxi driver was robbed at knifepoint in San Francisco’s Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood early this morning, police said. The robbery occurred shortly before 1:50 a.m. near the intersection of Sutter and Baker streets. The cabbie, a 70-year-old man, had picked up the suspect and driven him to that intersection, according to police. When they arrived there, the suspect pulled out a knife, put it to the driver’s throat and demanded money, police said. The victim complied, and the suspect, described only as a man in his 50s, got out of the cab and fled with the cash, according to police. The cabbie was not injured in the robbery.
