A 275-pound, 6-foot-7-inch taxi driver was robbed early today by two men who forced him into the trunk of his cab while the robbers drove around Baltimore and possibly robbed two drug dealers, city police said.
Jeffrey Brink, 30, a driver for Diamond Cab Co., was released from the cab's trunk by a passerby about 7:20 a.m. in the 1400 block of Tenpin Alley, a half block north of Baltimore Street. He was uninjured.
Mr. Brink told police he picked up two fares about 5:30 a.m. at Eager Street and Broadway.
The victim said when the men reached their destination -- The Flag House Courts high-rise at 127 S. Exeter St. -- one of the man produced a semiautomatic handgun and pointed the weapon at his head.
