Police are asking for the public's help in finding a man who they say robbed a taxi driver at knifepoint Tuesday in the Bronx.

Investigators say the man got into a livery cab on Bruckner Boulevard shortly after 1:30 p.m. and asked to be taken to Trinity Avenue in Morrisania.

When they arrived, police say the man pulled out a knife and took the driver's cell phone and money.

The driver was not hurt.

The suspect is described as in his 20s, around 5'9" tall and weighing 180 pounds.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
