The cab driver was transported to the Midtown Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries and eventually released from the hospital.

Members of the Columbus Police Department Robbery/Assault Unit began an investigation, which led to the arrests of 19-year-old Nicholas Jemese Thomas and 21-year-old Terrence Lamar Sanders.

Both are charged with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and criminal attempt armed robbery.
