|A Regina man is facing charges after he allegedly stole a taxi with a passenger in the back seat.
On Tuesday, Regina police were called to the area of 12th Avenue and Winnipeg Street for a reported stolen vehicle. An investigation by police concluded that the cab was dropping off a passenger, and as the driver got out of the vehicle to assist the passenger, the suspect approached.

No one was injured in the incident. A 30-year-old man is charged with robbery. He is also charged with mischief under 5,000, related to another incident on the same day.
He appears in court on Wednesday afternoon.
