HAZLETON — A cab driver was assaulted and robbed on North Fulton Court near Harmen Geist Stadium early Wednesday morning.

City police said the suspect contacted a taxi company requesting transportation. When the cab driver arrived to pick up the fare just before 1 a.m., the suspect approached the driver’s side door and punched the driver in the head, police said.

Police said the suspect brandished a black colored handgun and demanded money from the driver.

The suspect was given money and struck the driver in the back of the head with the handgun, police said.

A cell phone was taken from the driver.

Police described the suspect as a black man in his late teens or early 20s. Two other men were with the suspect, police said.
