TheftCourts and the Judiciary

A taxicab driver was robbed at knifepoint in Edgewood on Friday night, the Harford County Sheriff's Office reported.

Deputies were dispatched at 10:46 p.m. for a report of an armed robbery.

The driver, who works for L&L Cab Services, was originally sent to pick up a fare in the 1800 block of Eloise Lane, Sheriff's Office spokesman Edward Hopkins said.

After the caller did not show up, the driver went to a new fare in the 1700 block of Fountain Rock Way.

After waiting for several minutes, she noticed a woman emerging from behind the unit, Hopkins said.

The woman, later identified as 42-year-old Candace Eleanor Agent, then opened the passenger door of the cab and directed the driver to the 1800 block of Eloise Lane.

Upon arrival, Agent allegedly grabbed the driver by her hair, pulled her head back and put a knife to her neck, demanding money, Hopkins said.

The driver managed to get the knife away from Agent, who fled the vehicle.

Agent was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, robbery and armed robbery.

She was originally ordered held without bond, but District Court Judge Susan Hazlett reduced bond to $150,000 during a bail review Monday.

Agent continues to be held in the Harford County Detention Center.
