2nd Totem Taxi Driver Robbed

     PINE CITY, NY (WENY) -- Authorities are investigating another robbery of a Totem Taxi driver.
      This time, the robbery happened on Antes Road in Pine City. The Chemung County Sheriff's Office says a black male showed a weapon to the cab driver and demanded cash. The suspect then stole the cab, which was later recovered in the city of Elmira.
      The suspect is described as 20 to 30 years old, approximately 6-feet tall, with a medium build with short hair, scruffy facial hair, with glasses and wearing a dark puffy coat with fur trim on the hood.
     It's the second time this month a Totem Taxi driver was robbed; a female cab driver was robbed earlier in January during a pickup at Hathorn Court in Elmira. No arrests have been made.
     Anyone with information should call the Sheriff's Office at  (607) 737-2933 or (607) 737-8600.
