One man has been arrested and police are searching for a second suspect after they robbed a man using a stolen taxi in Miami-Dade early Thursday.
Around 1 a.m., a man called police after saying he was robbed by two men at gun point outside of a Bank of America branch off Northwest 36th Street and 12th Avenue.
Officers spotted the taxi in Northwest Miami-Dade before the driver sped off. The driver would eventually crash into a pole near Northwest 7th Avenue and 135th Street before both people inside would jump out and run.
A gun was found inside the taxi and police were able to capture one of the suspects, who was identified as 19-year-old Kelly Vixamar.
