Man with hand tattoo suspected in violent robbery of taxi driver
Langley RCMP have released a photo of a man with a distinctive hand tattoo suspected in a violent robbery of a cab driver on Dec. 13, 2013.
Around 2 a.m., two Caucasian males entered a cab and asked to go to 196 Street and Fraser Highway. The men indicated they didn't have enough money to pay for the ride back to Surrey.
As they arrived at their requested destination, the suspect seated behind the driver reached to the front console and took the iPhone of the cab driver, said Langley police.
The driver attempted to retrieve his phone when the suspect punched him in the head. Both men exited the vehicle and fled on foot.
The suspect is described as Caucasian, in his late 20s with short hair and appears to be scruffy looking. He has a fairly distinctive tattoo of a skull on the back of his right hand.
