FOX 35 News at 10 p.m.

- A cab driver is speaking out after a terrifying ordeal where a woman pointed a gun right at him and robbed him. The victim says he just listened to the suspect and waited to get the whole thing over with. 

Police say this woman in the photo holding a handgun robbed a taxi driver on Monday night.

“We went down a few blocks and she said pull over.” Cab driver John Lee says he picked up the woman off of Rockingham Circle, but later found out it was a fake address saying she didn't live there.

All the red flags were there. She was getting angry in the cab. According to Lee, the woman who went by the name of Devine told him to pull over. 

“She said do exactly as I say give me your cash and give me your phone, so I gave her cash and a phone,” explained Lee.

Officers say the woman is around 5'6 to 5'8 with brownish blonde hair. She was wearing a purple outfit.

According to police, Lee didn't immediately report the incident because he was too scared, but now he hopes she's caught.

“She went too far, she should have never done that. I hope she changes her mind or changes her heart and turns herself in,” Lee said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Orlando Police Department.
