Howard County police were looking for a man they say robbed a cab driver Saturday night in Columbia. According to police, Alexander Bofah was approached by a man in the Long Reach Village Center parking lot around 8 p.m. seeking a ride. After the man got into the cab and Bofah began to drive away, the suspect put a knife to Bofah's neck and demanded cash, police said. After a struggle, Bofah, 38, gave him an undisclosed amount of money, and the suspect fled. Bofah then called police. He described the man as black, about 5 feet 9 inches, between 25 and 30 years old, with short black hair. He was wearing a brown shirt and jeans, police said.
