A New York man faces charges after he allegedly robbed a cab driver on Saturday in Brewer.
Johnathan Guitierrez-Gomez, 20, of Amityville, NY., is charged with robbery, criminal threatening and assault.
The victim, a cab driver, reported that he picked up Guitierrez-Gomez and another person at a Bangor residence to take them to the Brewer Walmart. While travelling to the Brewer location, an argument about the cab fare ensued.
