TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa police say a taxi cab driver was carjacked by a customer at knifepoint near a fast-food restaurant.

A man was arrested Tuesday night in Sapulpa in connection with the carjacking.

The Tulsa World ( ) reports the cab driver told police that early Tuesday he had picked up a male customer, who pulled a knife and ordered him to drive to the restaurant.
