A driver with the TT Ride Share (TTRS) service was beaten and robbed by someone who ordered a taxi on Wednesday.
Police said the 39-year-old driver was working with his blue Kia Nero at around 2.30 pm when he received a request for a taxi in Carapo.
When he arrived, a man got into the car and aimed a gun at him. The bandit stole two cellphones and $600 in cash.
The driver tried to struggle with the bandit, but was beaten.
He managed to drive off before the bandit could steal his car.
Arima police are continuing enquiries.
