Armed Miami Taxi Driver Targeted In Rush-Hour Robbery

posted on September 4, 2015

Miami-area taxi driver Jean Louis, 30, was making his rounds Wednesday at about 7 a.m. when a couple flagged him down. Once in the vehicle, Christian Suarez, 23, and Nicole Iacono, 18, asked to be taken to a location about 20 blocks south. Just before arriving, Louis was asked to drive them one more block and make a right.

Becoming suspicious, Louis asked the two to settle their fare. In response Suarez pointed a gun at Louis, reached into the drivers-side door, and grabbed a handful of cash. Suarez and Iacono then exited the vehicle, and when Louis followed, they fired at him. When Louis returned fire with his own gun, the couple fled.

Officers tracked them to the nearby Wishes Motel where, after several hours, Suarez, Iacono and two others in the room surrendered to police. According to an arrest affidavit, Suarez has been charged with felony attempted murder with a firearm.
