ROCHESTER — Police are looking for a man a cab driver says robbed him at gunpoint at about 3:20 Saturday morning in Rochester.


Police said they were told by the driver of a Frank's Taxi cab that he picked up a fare on Portland Street in downtown Rochester for a ride to Somersworth.


The driver told police the suspect pulled a black semi-automatic handgun and directed the cab to Salmon Falls Road where he demanded the driver's money. The suspect then ran off on foot.


A canine unit pursued a scent near Salmon Falls Road, where it was lost.


Police said the cab driver described the robber as a thin white male, about 6 feet tall, with a goatee and a tattoo on his right forearm. He was wearing a puffy grey jacket and black trousers,with dark sneakers and gloves.
