A knife-wielding taxi theft has La Ronge police looking for suspects.

Investigators say the 1 a.m. Sunday taxi ride onto the Lac La Ronge Indian Band started off as a normal transport, but went awry when a male passenger threatened the driver with a large knife.

The suspect made away with cash and the vehicle, and police found the cab abandoned soon after.

The suspect is described as a First Nations male between the age of 20 and 30. It appears as though Mounties have not made an arrest at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
