Tucson police have arrested a man suspected of robbing a cab driver at knife point last month.

Michael Pitts, 37, was wanted on a felony warrant for armed robbery.

He is suspected of flagging down the cab in the 200 block of North Fourth Avenue at about 9:15 p.m. Jan. 19, and asking for a ride to North Ninth Avenue and West Lee Street. When the cab arrived at the destination, Pitts “put a knife to the cab driver’s ribs and demanded money,” Sgt. Chris Widmer, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said in a press release. He made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

At about 2 this morning TPD officers saw Pitts near the intersection of North 10th Avenue and West Adams Street. He was arrested without incident and booked into the Pima County jail, Widmer said.
