LEWISTON — Police were looking for a woman Saturday who allegedly held up a City Cab driver, showed a gun and fled on foot after getting a small amount of money.

Sgt. Dan LaChance said the woman was described as white and was last seen wearing black pants and a gray sweatshirt.

The cab driver, who had been called to a pickup in front of 39 Knox St. when the robbery occurred, wasn’t hurt, LaChance said.

The initial call to police came in at 3:50 p.m., leading them to search the area. There had been no arrest and no one was in custody by late Saturday night.
