A cab driver, Jorge Arbayza de la Cruz, was shot and killed on the night of September 30, in Orange County. His family is asking for justice while police look for the killer, according to CBS2.
Family, friends and colleagues held a candle vigil along North Miller Street in Newburgh, in tribute to the 51-year-old cabbie, in October. His sister, Juana Bendecu, said he was a good-hearted man who came to the U.S. from Peru in 2015.
Police said Arbayza de la Cruz was dropping off a fare when the passenger tried to rob him at gunpoint around 9:00pm. There was a struggle, and he was shot twice before the passenger ran away.
Arbayza de la Cruz’s family put up money for a $10,000 reward for information about the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the Newburgh Police detective division at 845-569-7509.
