Police have issued an e-fit image of a robber who stole a taxi after threatening the driver with a knife in Leeds.

He was one of two men who robbed the 37-year-old man on December 29.

The victim picked the men up from Haslewood Drive in Burmantofts and took them to Noster Grove, Beeston, at about 6.30pm.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “At Noster Grove, the taxi driver was threatened with a knife by one of the suspects.

“The driver jumped out of the taxi which was then stolen.”

The car was found abandoned on nearby Normanton Grove in the early hours of the following day.

The thieves also took the sat-nav, several hundred pounds in cash and two mobile phones. The two men were described as being in their twenties or thirties.

One was mixed race and 5ft 10in tall, of medium build and had a front tooth missing.

The other was white, about 5ft 8in tall and was heavily 
built.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det Con Michael Wimbles at Holbeck CID via 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
