DNAinfo reports that a yellow cab driver punched a 24-year-old female passenger after she asked him to pull over because her friend felt sick (there also seems to have been some dispute about the fare, not that it matters). The attack, which happened last Tuesday night on the Lower East Side, left the woman with redness on her face and scratches on her neck, and the NYPD is now searching for the cabbie, who has been described as “a man with short gray hair.” That’s obviously not a lot to go on, so … just hope you don’t happen to get into this guy’s car.
