AUSTIN, Minn. - A taxi driver was robbed at knife point early Monday morning in Mower County, police said.
The robbery happened at 1 a.m. at 14th Ave. and 8th St. when the taxi driver was dropping off a Hispanic male.
The suspect gave the driver a $100 bill for the $8-dollar ride before demanding that money plus additional cash back.
He managed to get away with around $300.
