NYPD: 3 people in custody, 2 still wanted in death of Bronx taxi driver
Three young people are now behind bars in connection to the death of Bronx taxi driver Kutin Gyimah.
One of the three people currently facing charges is a 15-year-old girl, police say. She’s been charged with gang assault and theft of services.
The other two people charged are both 20-year-old men from Queens -- Austin Amos and Nickolas Porter.
So far, Austin Amos is the only suspect facing the higher manslaughter charge.
The group of five was seen on camera kicking and punching the cab driver after allegedly refusing to pay their fare after he drove them to Far Rockaway, Queens. Toward the end of the altercation, one of the men punches Gyimah who falls backward and hits his head on the ground.
Gyimah leaves behind his wife and four young children. His widow Abigail spoke out Thursday, thanking the community for their support. The family has received thousands of dollars of donations through GoFundMe and their church Ghana Methodist United Church.
Police are still looking for two other people in connection to this crime.
