A taxi operator was robbed at gunpoint of an undetermined sum of cash following an incident in Kendal, Manchester on Sunday, June 06.

One man was charged in relation to the incident, after his face mask fell off.

Charged with Robbery with Aggravation and Illegal Possession of Firearm and Ammunition is 20-year-old Antwan Lowe, otherwise called ‘Jay’, of Job Lane, Christiana in Manchester.

Reports from the Kendal Police are that about 7:15 a.m., the taxi operator picked up two male passengers along the roadway, one of which pulled a firearm and demanded money. On reaching a section of the roadway, the driver lost control of the vehicle which crashed in a perimeter fence. The men exited the vehicle and a tussle ensued, during which the face mask of one of the robbers fell off. Minutes later the accused was nabbed after the matter was reported to the Police.

His court date is being finalised.
