GRETNA, La. – A 20-year-old woman and her alleged teenage accomplice were arrested after deputies say they robbed and stabbed a cab driver in Gretna Saturday night.

Roxanne Brown, 20; and DeShane Morton, 17, were booked with attempted armed robbery, attempted second-degree murder and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

 

According to deputies, the pair called for a cab and when the driver dropped them off on Whitney Avenue, one of them pulled out a gun and demanded money.

Deputies said the cabbie fought back and that the second suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the cabbie several times before they ran off with an undisclosed amount of money.
