On Monday, July 4, a black taxi van was allegedly hi­jacked by three men in Port Isabel.

The taxi driver, Gabriel Hernandez said he had picked up the three suspects at Dou­bleday Sports Bar and Grill.

“The passengers asked the driver to drive to the 500 block of South Shore, once there the front passenger pro­duced a knife and placed the knife up against the taxi driv­er’s neck and demanded mon­ey. The taxi driver reached for the sun visor where he keeps his money and turned it over to the assailants,” said PIPD.
