Tucson man accused of robbing taxi-cab driver at knife point

A 37-year-old Arizona man is likely looking for legal representation this month after police arrested him and accused him of armed robbery.

According to police, the man had been wanted for the last month for a January incident in which a taxi-cab driver was robbed at knife point. They claim that the 37-year-old flagged down the taxi. He then allegedly pressed a knife into the ribs of the driver before taking an undisclosed amount of money.

A case like this is difficult for community members to sort out because the police have not provided reporters with enough details to get the entirety of the story. There are still so many unanswered questions that first have to be looked at before investigators can make any decisions.

One such question revolves around what evidence brought investigators to the conclusion that the 37-year-old man was the guilty party. Did law enforcement have simply an eyewitness description or was there photographic evidence to go off of?

If no solid visual evidence existed, were officers then able to get any DNA evidence that led them to the man? Did he have a previous criminal record and police were simply "going off of a hunch?"

It will be important for investigators to consider these questions and more when it comes time for trial because, as some Arizona residents may already be aware, armed robbery carries with it a felony charge. Felony charges carry with them hefty consequences and can often times be difficult to defend against. For accusations like this, legal representation is always advised.
