    Police have arrested a man accused of robbing a taxi driver at knifepoint about two months ago.

    Aaron Johnson, 39, of New Haven, is accused of holding a knife to the cab driver's chest and demanding money while as the taxi approached Newhall Street and Mill Rock Road in New Have, police said. The taxi driver had picked him up at the train station in New Haven.
