Four Oakland Mills High School students have been charged in the robbery and attempted murder of a cab driver in Columbia, Md., Howard County police said.

The four students were arrested last week and charged as adults, police said.

The cab driver picked up four passengers March 1, and during the ride, they asked him to pull over, police said.

One of the passengers put a belt around the driver's neck and began choking him, police said. Another passenger pointed a handgun at the driver and threatened to kill him.

The driver hit the gas pedal, and the cab struck a tree, deploying the airbags. The driver escaped with minor injuries.

Nineteen-year-old Khalid Khahiem Woods, 16-year-old Johnam Perez-Rivera and 17-year-old Woody Rousseau have been charged with attempted murder. Seventeen-year-old Chellby Ofosusafori is charged with armed robbery.
