Police seek suspects in robbery of Yonkers taxi driver

Posted: Updated:

The NYPD is working to track down suspects in connection with a robbery involving a Yonkers taxi driver.

They've released images of individuals who they say entered a Livery Cab in Yonkers headed to 125th Street and Lenox Avenue.

On the way, the NYPD says the driver stopped the cab to make change for the passengers.

Officials say that's when a dispute broke out over whether or not the driver could break a $100 bill.

That dispute escalated when one of the suspects allegedly displayed a knife and took $1,500 in cash from the driver before leaving the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
