Ipswich police have charged a man after a taxi driver was allegedly bound and robbed in Bundamba overnight.

It will be alleged at midnight a man caught a taxi on Ipswich Rd at Annerley and was transported to River Rd in Bundamba. Once the taxi reached the location the man allegedly produced a knife and demanded the 42-year-old male driver stop the vehicle. The man then tied the driver's hands together behind his seat before taking a sum of money and fleeing the scene on foot.

Yet another stern reminder to be extra vigilant. Consider your own safety regardless of taxi/uber/limo.

Strange part of the segment shows the driver sitting in a Holden Epica, so I'm confused whether it was a taxi or uber?

May have been re-enacting for the cameras...
He was pointing to where cabs have distress alarm button...

I got robbed last night in an armed robbery. But with the cameras, satellite tracking and quick thinking of Ash the night supervisor I am still alive. So uber drivers wake up. I sincerely thank Ash, Rav, the Ipswich Police and their sniffer dogs for saving my life.
