A robbery in Ajax led to charges against at 32-year old man after a taxi was stolen at knife point. Police say the suspect was a passenger in the taxi when he threatened the driver with a knife and stole the vehicle. The incident occurred in Ajax on Wednesday last week in the Salem Rd. and Kingston Rd. area; both the taxi and the suspect were found in Peterborough early Saturday morning. He was arrested after a standoff with police; charges include robbery, possession of a weapon, and uttering threats, none of which have been proven in court. The suspect is being held for a bail hearing.
