Unstable Passengers Beat Cabbie
Yesterday, [a taxi driver was beaten and then robbed by his two passengers after telling them he didnít know how to get to their desired destination]. Iím sure itís exceedingly disappointing after a long, hard day not to be able to get where youíre going at lightning speed, but a little patience, please. According to police, Gilbert Ruiz, 26, and Christopher Lopez, 22, hailed 42-year-old Frederick Dsouzaís cab on 2nd Ave. and E. 86th St. at approximately 2:15 a.m. When Dsouza said he wasnít familiar with the Bronx addressed they requested, Ruiz opened the driver side door and slugged him; he proceeded to throw a backpack (presumably Dsouzaís) to the ground and when the driver got out of the car and tried to retrieve it, Ruiz and Lopez beat him until he lost consciousness. Moral: If youíre a cabbie, make sure you know where youíre going. OK, well really thatís just good advice in a strange and unpredictable world.(http://flickr.com/photos/lpq/)
