In January, two men attempted to rob a For-Hire Vehicle (FHV) driver in the Bronx, and the crime was caught in a dramatic video. Police say one of the suspects hit the driver in the head with a handgun while demanding cash. The other suspect put his hands around the 42-year-old victim’s neck.
The driver was able to fight the attackers off and grab the gun away. Both suspects fled empty-handed. Police were still searching for them in late-January.
