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 (http://bit.ly/1FB6Cdc ) 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.

Police say the customer then forced the driver out of his 2005 Dodge Caravan and sped off in the vehicle.

Authorities say the driver suffered a minor shoulder injury when he fell while running from the van. He was treated at the scene.

Police say the van was later found abandoned in Sapulpa.
