Four Buffalo women were recently charged with skipping out on their cab fares, according to police reports.
A Liberty Cab driver picked up a woman at Chippewa and Franklin streets around 8:30 a.m. Friday. She told him she needed to go to Main and Utica streets.
The woman told the driver she needed to stop at Allen Street and Elmwood Avenue to find her boyfriend, who would pay for the cab fare. On the way there, she offered the driver sexual favors in exchange for the ride. The driver demanded the fare, and the woman refused to pay, according to a police report.
The woman got out of the vehicle and headed west down Allen, never paying the $12.30 she owed.
Sheila Williams, 27, of Chippewa Street, was charged with theft of services and prostitution.
Around 10:30 p.m. Friday, another cab driver told police, three women tried to get out of his cab on Carl Street, a block away from Grider Street, without paying their $36.40 fare. When the driver tried to stop them, they hit him in the back of his head and neck, he told police.
Three teenagers each were charged with assault, harassment and theft of services.
