A knife-wielding robber threatened to kill a taxi driver in an early morning attack.
Police said the 56-year-old victim was called to Beech Street in Accrington at around 4.30am on Saturday, March 5 and was confronted by a man wielding a knife.
The robber approached the taxi and opened the door before pointing the six-inch knife at the driver and threatened to kill him if he didn’t hand over all his money.
Police said the victim repeatedly tried to close the door before the robber reached into the Vauxhall Vectra and tried to steal the keys from the ignition.
However he ran off after the key snapped and was last seen running down an alleyway between Beech Street and Midland Street.
The robber is described as a white male, around 25 years old and 5ft 8ins tall, wearing a black hooded jumper and tracksuit bottoms.
Anyone with information should call Lancashire Police on 101 quoting log number 218 of March 5.
