Man suspected of robbing Tucson cabbie is arrested
TUCSON, Ariz. -- A man suspected of robbing a Tucson cab driver at knifepoint last month has been arrested.
Tucson police say 37-year-old Michael Pitts was wanted on a felony warrant for armed robbery.
Pitt is suspected of flagging down the cab on Jan. 19 and asking for a ride.
When the cab arrived at the destination, police say Pitts ``put a knife to the cab driver's ribs and demanded money.''
Police say Pitts made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
At about 2 a.m. Wednesday, police officers spotted Pitts and he was arrested without incident.
He's been booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of armed robbery.
Police don't immediately know if Pitts has a lawyer yet.
