A cab driver who was pepper-sprayed and yanked out of his car in Queens spoke out about the incident. A 15-year-old assailant was arrested for the carjacking in Ozone Park on October 23.
“We need more support from NYPD, more support from city,” pleaded driver, M.D. Luthfur Rahman, as he described the terrifying ordeal. “We are really scared about this job because we are doing it ourselves.”
The teen suspect accused of stealing Rahman’s car wound up crashing before being chased down by members of a nearby mosque. The New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers is calling on the city to step up police patrols to protect cabbies.
