A Newcastle taxi driver has endured a frightening ordeal as 3 men robbed him at knife point.
He pulled over to pick up a passenger on Nesca Parade at The Hill just after 9.30 last night, but the 35-year-old cabbie was threatened with a kitchen knife.
2 other men then jumped into the taxi wearing balaclavas, both armed with small pocket knives.
Police says the trio escaped with a small amount of cash and the keys to the taxi.
