The Normal Police Department is asking for tips and help after a male cab driver was robbed by riders late Sunday evening. 

Officers were called to the scene shortly after 9 p.m. July 28. The cab driver dropped off the two suspects, both described as black males in their 20s.

As they arrived at the location, one of the suspects revealed a handgun and demanded money from the cab driver. The driver was struck multiple times before escaping on foot with his money. The driver's injuries did not require medical attention. 

Any one with information on this armed robbery is encouraged to contact NPD Detective Brad Underwood at (309) 433-9798 or McLean County Crime Stoppers at (309) 828-1111. Callers can remain anonymous. Those who tip or provide information may be eligible for a cash reward.
