Two men robbed a driver and three passengers of their cell phones and a quantity of cash on Saturday morning.

Reports indicate that two men entered the maxi-taxi as passengers around 9:00a.m in at Olton Road in Arima. One of the bandits rung the bell to signal to the driver to stop and when he did, the bandit demanded that the driver turn off the vehicle and hand over his possessions. The driver gave one of the bandits his cell phone and $1,500 while the other bandit robbed the three passengers of two cell phones and $320. The men then escaped.
