Taxi driver allegedly robbed in Derby

Police have released an image of a man they want to speak to as part of an investigation into an alleged robbery.

Police say the incident, which allegedly took place at around 11.30pm on July 14, saw a taxi driver pick up a fare in Derby.

Officers say three men got into the back of the taxi and allegedly asked the driver to take them to Meadow Lane, in Alvaston.

It is claimed that after parking up in Meadow Lane, one of the men allegedly produced a knife and allegedly threatened him, taking the keys from the ignition.

Two men were arrested nearby on suspicion of robbery, and they have since been questioned and released under investigation.
