Officers found Ganiou Gandnou sitting on the driver’s side of his taxi at about 10:45 p.m. at 4160 Hutchinson Parkway East in the Co-Op City section of the Bronx. The 27-year-old was rushed to NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi where he died one hour later.

According to police, the suspect fled the scene.

The New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers is offering a $3,000 reward for help locating the suspect.

“This was a savage attack on a young man who was trying to earn a living, it take an animal, someone with no type of remorse to brutally stab someone to death simply to rob him,” said spokesman of the NYSFTD Fernando Mateo.

Ganiou Gandonou had a toddler son, Mateo said.

“This savage stabbing cannot go unsolved,” he said.
