The suspect responsible for an armed robbery of a Metro Taxi cab driver in Hamden two years ago was arrested last week, police said. 

Aaron Johnson, 41, of New Haven was arrested on Sept. 20 after an investigation revealed that he held a taxi driver at knifepoint, Hamden Police said. 

Police said the taxi driver picked Johnson up on Cedar Street in New Haven Dec. 26, 2014 and dropped him off at Marlboro Street in Hamden. Once they arrived at Johnson's requested destination, the 41-year-old took out a knife and held it to the driver's neck and stole an undisclosed amount of money, according to police. 

Johnson was charged with robbery in the first-degree and with second-degree larceny. He was arraigned on Tuesday.
