Pair attempt to rob cabbie in Oceanside

OCEANSIDE - A cab driver claims he scared away two men who tried to rob him after he dropped one of them off in Oceanside Monday night.

The driver told police he picked up a man in Escondido and gave him a ride to the 1600 block of Kelly Street sometime before 10 p.m. On arrival, the man told the driver he had no money, and would go get some from his father.

He returned with a second man, who was wearing a mask, and they demanded money. The cab driver said he feared they may be armed, so he pulled out a gun, scaring them away.

The driver said the two men appeared to be wearing long-haired wigs.

No arrests have been made. Oceanside police are investigating.
