Police in Dundee are investigating after a female taxi driver was robbed by a passenger.

The male passenger demanded money from the driver on Milton Street, near Scott Court, at about 22:30 on Sunday.

The man was aged in his late 20s, about 6ft (1.83m) tall, with short brown hair, and was wearing a grey hooded top under another jacket. He made off with a Kindle tablet, leaving the driver shaken but unhurt.

Officers have appealed for information.

Investigating officers are particularly keen to speak to a man who was walking by as the incident unfolded. He was described as being in his 40s or 50s, with dark brown hair, and was smartly dressed with a jacket and trousers.
