Women Punched, Stabbed Cab Driver in the Bronx: Cops

Police released this image of the women suspected of punching and stabbing a livery cab driver.

Police are looking for two women who allegedly assaulted a livery cab driver in the Bronx.

The women, who were picked up by the driver at 301 East 193rd St. at around 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday, became angry about the fare over the course of the ride, according to police. 

One of them punched the driver when they were near the Major Deegan Expressway ramp at Fordham Road, and then one stabbed him after he ordered them to get out of the car, police said.

The driver, who refused medical attention, is said to have been stabbed by an object that caused a small puncture wound on his arm.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
