Cops are looking for a trio who stole a cab driver’s belongings after driving off with the vehicle in Brooklyn.
According to police, at 11:33 p.m. on April 28, a 68-year-old male livery cab driver got into a dispute with three female passengers on the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and Flatlands Avenue. Police say that the suspects pushed the driver in the head while he was in the car.
The victim got out of the car and one of the suspects hopped into the driver’s seat. The suspects drove the car one block away and after parking the vehicle, they swiped the victim’s cellphone and electronic tablet.
The crooks then fled the scene in an unknown direction. The victim was not injured as a result of the incident.
On May 4, the NYPD released photos and video of the suspects taken from nearby surveillance footage:
