New Westminster police are looking for a suspect in a Feb. 12 robbery of a taxi driver.

Police said a man pulled a knife on the driver and stole some money from him at the Edmonds SkyTrain station before forcing him to drive to a convenience store in New Westminster where the suspect tried to force the driver to withdraw some cash. The driver, however, was able to get away from the suspect before withdrawing any money.

The suspect is Caucasian, mid-20s with a five-foot-six medium build. He was wearing a black jacket with a large white V on it, dark jeans, white running shoes, and a white ball cap. He also had distinctive tattoos on his hand.

Anyone with any information about the suspect is asked to contact Det. Josh Hooker at 604-529-2537.
