Recommended Posts

On Wednesday at approximately 3:00 PM, officers from the Elmira Police Department responded to the area of Lake St. and Division St. for an initial report of an attempted robbery.  Responding officers were advised that a subject had attempted to rob a cab driver in the 1200 block of Lake St.  The first officers on scene located the cab driver to gather further information.

Police were told the cab driver had dropped a fare off at a residence in the 1200 block of Lake St. and an argument took place.  One of the passengers in the cab exited and went inside of the residence before coming back outside and displaying what appeared to be a pistol.  A second person also came out of the residence and became involved in the altercation.
