Lodi police are searching for a man accused of trying to rob a taxi cab driver on Wednesday.

A man wearing gold chains and baggy pants flagged down cab driver Samuel Bribiesca in Modesto and asked him to drive to Lodi, said Sgt. Mike Oden of the Lodi Police Department.

When the taxi arrived in Lodi and turned into the 300 block of South Sunset Drive around 12:30 p.m., the passenger put an object to Bribiesca’s head and demanded all his money, Oden said.

Bribiesca dove out of the taxi, which collided with a parked car at the very slow speed. The suspect fled on foot.

Lodi Police extensively searched the area but were unable to find the suspect. Detectives are following numerous leads, Oden said.
