COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Surveillance photos are all police have of a suspect who robbed a Columbus cab driver on September 5, 2012.

The photos were taken inside a Columbus convenience store where the cab driver was dispatched.

"He wanted her to take him to Phenix City at which time he got out of the vehicle went into one of the apartments, came back got back in the cab and asked her to take him to 907 Benning Drive, at which time he told the cab driver he had a gun and that he didn't want to hurt her but he wanted the money", said Columbus Police Officer Deborah Whitley.

According to Whitley, the name the suspect used to request a cab was "Darryl." Once he robbed the driver of about $50, he ran away toward Winston Road in Columbus.

"With him being armed and dangerous and robbing, he may commit other robberies and we would like to find him as soon as possible," says Whitley.

The suspect is described as a black male, between 28 to 35 years old. He's around 6-feet tall with a slender build.

Help police put this suspect behind bars and make this community a little safer for store owners and cab drivers who police say are constant victims of robbers. "That happens, just as with any store they do carry money, usually it's a low amount of money that they try to keep on them, to keep that from happening, but it does happen," Whitley told News Leader 9.

If you recognize the suspect and can help police make an arrest call (706) 653-3188. Remember if an arrest is made you can receive a cash reward of up to $1,000.
