The Paducah police are searching for a man who robbed a cab driver at gunpoint Sunday at the intersection of Oscar Cross Avenue and South 12th Street.
The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 6 feet, 1 inch tall with long hair and a medium build. He was last seen wearing a white shirt and jeans.
The cab driver told police he picked up a young man and woman at a downtown bar and grill at approximately 1:10 a.m. Sunday. They requested to go to the Oscar Cross Boys and Girls Club, he said.

The suspect demanded money and then fled on foot with a small amount of cash.
