Images have been released of two men police would like to speak to after a robbery in which a taxi driver was told he would be stabbed unless he handed over money.
The robbery happened in Brixworth after a minicab driver picked up two men at the private hire firm’s base in Northampton and took them to the village.
The men were asked to pay the fare up front, which they did, but once they got to Brixworth, the driver was directed to Froxhill Crescent and asked to pull over.
One of the men, who was in the back of the cab, pushed an object into the driver’s back and threatened to stab him unless he returned the money they had paid. The driver handed over the money and the men got out of the cab.
The robbery happened on Saturday, December 27, between 2.20am and 2.45am.
Witnesses to the incident or anyone who recognises either of the men pictured are asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
