LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A couple is accused of using a cab to run errands around town and then robbing the cabbie when returning to a woman's home.

This started Monday night, according to a pair of arrest reports, on Ash Street in Schnitzelburg.

Tiffany Hensley, 25, of Louisville, called for a cab on her cell phone, police said. They then went to a home on S. 6th Street near Churchill Downs before going to pick up her boyfriend on S. 4th Street, according to what the cab driver told police.

They then went to a food mart on Shelby Street before returning to Hensley's home on Ash Street.

That's when police accuse Isadore Sutton Jr., 47, of Louisville, of pulling out a gun and demanding money. Sutton reportedly told police that he took money from the cab driver but denied having a firearm.

The cab driver handed over his wallet containing $300, according to the arrest report. 

Hensley and Sutton were arrested Thursday and are charged with first-degree robbery.
