Niagara Falls police are still on the hunt for a man they say robbed a cab driver on 47th Street on Christmas night.

They say they think the man was armed when he held up the driver near Packard Road around 9 p.m. Sunday. The driver was not hurt and the suspect took cash.

Investigators say the driver followed the suspect to a nearby scrap yard, where police searched for several hours before calling off the search with no results. Police say the bandit is a black male, five-seven, probably in his 30s and weighing in at about 130 pounds.

He wore a gray hoodie and dark sweatpants.

Anyone with any information is urged to call the Niagara Falls Police Department at 286-4553.
