A 36-year-old Rome woman driving a taxi reported Wednesday she was robbed by a man with a knife when her car overheated on U.S. 411.

According to the Bartow County Sheriff's Office incident report, the woman pulled over near the Shaw Industries plant about 1:30 p.m. to allow the engine to cool and add water to the radiator. A small, faded black four-door passenger car occupied by two men pulled up.

One of the men got out and acted as if he was examining the engine. The victim said he pulled out a flip-blade knife with brown handles and said, "Give me all your money."

The men got away with $210. The woman saw the driver, who she said had curly hair down to his shoulders.

The man with a knife was wearing a brown ball cap, blue jeans and cream-colored shirt with unknown writing.

Deputies responded to the area and searched for the vehicle, but were unsuccessful.
