Second attempt:

highwayman.

My prefix is where rainbows are

Up HIGH, still.

My infix is what maps show

Maps show you the WAY. (Please no meme references)

My suffix is a person

A MAN is indeed a person.

And my whole can rob you

TIL that a HIGHWAYMAN is "a man, typically on horseback, who held up travelers at gunpoint in order to rob them".

A guess:

Hijack.

My prefix is where rainbows are

Rainbows are up HI in the sky.

My infix is what maps show

Not sure on this one.

My suffix is a person

Jack can be a person's name.

And my whole can rob you

Hijacking is similar to robbing.
