Livery cab driver punched, robbed in the Bronx

The BRONX — Police are looking for the two men who attacked and robbed a livery cab driver in the Bronx.

The 61-year-old driver picked up two men at 1411 Fulton Ave and requested to be taken to a location along East 168th Street and Third Avenue in the Bronx on Feb. 5.

When they arrived at the destination, an argument ensued over the fare price, police said.

During the argument, one of the passengers punched the driver in the face and forcibly removed $500 in cash, according to cops.
