3 Women Robbed 2 Cab Drivers at Gunpoint

Two taxi drivers in Midtown and the Bronx were robbed with guns raised. The NYPD is looking for three women.

Police put out pictures of the women in the hopes that someone would know them after they said they robbed two taxi drivers at gunpoint in the middle of the night.

Grand Central was the first place they hit. Police say the three women pulled a gun on a taxi driver, 60 years old, on Monday, November 20, around 1 a.m.

Before getting out of the cab, the women told the driver to hand over his cell phone. Police say the last place they were seen running was in the Grand Central-42nd Street subway stop.

The three women then took a taxi to the Fordham Heights neighborhood of the Bronx around 3 a.m. Two hours later, they pulled out guns again and demanded the 59-year-old driver’s phone and wallet with about $200 in cash before running away.

The driver dropped them off near Ryer Avenue and 180th Street, where the women were arrested. Some cab drivers said Tuesday morning that fear for their safety is one reason they don’t work overnight.

“I work the day shift. I don’t work in the night,” one driver said.

Aziz has been driving cars in New York City for more than 10 years. He says he is always careful, even though he has never been robbed.

“You need to know. You need to get home to your family without getting hurt. You can’t risk your life for a small bit of money. “That’s not how it works,” said another cab driver.

The cab drivers were not hurt in either case, according to the police.
