Police investigating robbery of taxi driver

Naples police are investigating a report of a taxi driver being robbed early Monday.

The driver told officers he picked up two men on Golden Gate Parkway near Sunshine Boulevard around 5:15 a.m. and agreed to take them to the area of Fifth Avenue North and Goodlette-Frank Road. But when he arrived at the destination, one of the men hit him on the back of the head, according to an incident report.

The men grabbed the driver’s wallet form his pants, took $700 and dropped the wallet as they ran off, a report said. The driver was taken to NCH Downtown Naples Hospital to be evaluated for his injuries.

An incident report did not provide detailed descriptions of the subjects. The robbery remains under investigation.
