The driver picked up the three suspects at around 11 p.m. Thursday at the Bay Point BART station and drove them to an apartment complex off of Delta Fair Boulevard in Antioch.

When they arrived at the apartments, one of the three suspects pulled out a gun and robbed the 45-year-old cab driver. The suspect then ordered the driver out of the car and into the trunk of the cab. The suspects then drove the cab to Oakland and released the driver unharmed and drove away in the cab. The driver flagged down a passerby who then called Oakland police shortly after midnight this morning, Antioch police said. The three suspects remain at large, and may still be driving the driver’s cab.
