Man brandishing gun arrested for attempting to rob Taxi driver in Liverpool

A man has been arrested for the attempted robbery of a taxi driver and a takeaway in Kirkdale, Liverpool. Police were called after reports of a man brandishing a gun demanded cash from a taxi driver at around 2am Friday 13. While officers were taking a statement from the taxi driver they received a second call of an attempted arm robbery of a takeaway close by. Staff at the shop confirmed that the weapon was in fact a plastic replica and the robber was unable to collect any cash. Armed officers were called to the scene and soon arrested a 33 year old man on suspicion of robbery of a person and robbery of a business. The accused was detained for questioning. According to the Liverpool Echo, officers searching the area for any evidence found a police-style baton in a nearby wasteland. The replica gun is yet to be reported found.
