Teen jailed in connection with cab driver stabbing, robbery

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- A local cab driver is recovering, his car in ruins and a teen behind bars after a stabbing and robbery in Gwinnett County, Monday.

Gwinnett County police responded to a scene around 2 a.m. where they found a man covered in blood in the 1500 block of Boggs Road in Lawrenceville. Local residents were providing aid to the man when police arrived. Police said he appeared to have been stabbed in the left arm and head.

The victim told police he was attacked, stabbed several times and robbed. The attacker also took his cab, he said.

The entire incident began when he was going to an apartment at Austumn Vista Apartments to pick up a rider. At some point, the victim's cab was taken.

About two hours later, the cab was found wrecked at the intersection of Old Norcross Road and Ingram Road - more than five miles away.

Later that morning, police located a suspect, Luis Rojas, 16. The teen is being charged as an adult but currently is still being housed in the Rockdale Youth Detention Center for armed robbery and aggravated assault. A photo of the suspect has not yet been made available.

The victim was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where police said he is recovering.
