SALISBURY, Md. - A Salisbury man was arrested, after Police say he threatened a taxi driver with a knife, and stole the taxi.

Salisbury Police say early Friday morning, around 2:20 AM, officers responded to North Division Street and Route 50, for reports of a taxi driver being assaulted with a knife. An investigation showed that Academy Taxi driver picked up a passenger, 31-year-old Jeremy Row, at Brew River and was taking him home.

According to the report, at Mills Street and Route 50, the vehicle was stopped at a traffic light, and Row got out, and started urinating in the road. The driver reportedly asked him to get back into the vehicle, at which point Dow got back in, and apparently pulled out a knife and told the victim to keep driving. Police say the victim continued driving to North Division Street and Route 50, where they stopped the taxi, pushed the knife away, and fled from the vehicle.

Row then apparently got out of the backseat, into the drivers seat, and drove away. Officers say they caught up with the taxi on North Division Street at Isabella Street, pulled it over, and immediately smelled a strong odor of alcohol on Dow.

He was arrested, and charged with robbery, car jacking, 1st degree assault, reckless endangerment, theft of motor vehicle, and driving while intoxicated. Police say they were able to recover the knife, and that the victim was not injured during the incident.
