Man suspected of robbing Tucson cabbie is arrested

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A man suspected of robbing a Tucson cab driver at knifepoint last month has been arrested.

Tucson police say 37-year-old Michael Pitts was wanted on a felony warrant for armed robbery.

Pitt is suspected of flagging down the cab on Jan. 19 and asking for a ride.

When the cab arrived at the destination, police say Pitts ``put a knife to the cab driver's ribs and demanded money.''

Police say Pitts made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

At about 2 a.m. Wednesday, police officers spotted Pitts and he was arrested without incident.

He's been booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of armed robbery.

Police don't immediately know if Pitts has a lawyer yet.
