Police: 2 wanted in string of Brooklyn cab robberies
Police are searching for the two men who they say are connected to a string of local cab robberies in Brooklyn.
Officers say the two suspects are responsible for robbing cab drivers in three separate incidents across the borough.
The first incident happened on Thursday, Oct. 20 around 10 p.m. on New Jersey Avenue. Both men demanded a cellphone from a 36-year-old cab driver by threatening to kill him.
On that same day, only an hour later, those same suspects robbed a 51-year-old cab driver of his cellphone as well.
In the third incident that just occurred Friday, both men robbed a 57-year-old Lyft driver of his iPhone 13 Pro Max at the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Atlantic Avenue.
Both suspects are described as men with short, dark afro hair, a goatee and slim build. One of those suspects was last seen wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a hooded bubble jacket.
