Cabbie thwarts robbery attempt

Driving a cab is a dangerous occupation;
here a memorial to a cab driver slain on Spooner Avenue last October.
A Plainfield taxi cab driver thwarted a robbery attempt overnight Wednesday. The passenger pulled a knife on the driver in the 1300-block of Myrtle Avenue and demanded his cash. The driver fought the would-be robber off and he fled, only to be captured shortly afterward by police on patrol and the Union County Sheriff's K-9 unit. More as details emerge.

Good! Hopefully this sends a message to all those would-be wanna-be loser thugs that plague this city!

Good going. Now, if we can only get more people involved in the city, we would be a much better place.
