Cabdriver Strangles Would-Be Robber

February 28, 1996| Associated Press

DOVER, N.H. — A rookie cabdriver strangled a hammer-wielding would-be robber in a life-and-death struggle in his cab, authorities said.

The cabby, Jeff Allard Jr., who had been on the job only a few weeks, told police a man tried to rob him late Saturday night and hit him in the head with a hammer two or three times.

Allard, 23, managed to grab the man by the throat and strangle him, police said. The cabdriver was treated for head wounds and needed several stitches.

No charges were planned.
