Three men attacked a livery cab driver in the Bronx on Saturday morning, and stole his car, according to police.

The NYPD says that the cabbie, a 35-year-old man, had parked his car near Williamsbridge Road and Pelham Parkway North early Saturday morning, when three men approached him at about 2:20 a.m.

One of the men put a knife to the man's throat and put him in a chokehold, one of the men took the cabbie's keys, wallet and cell phone, and the third man acted as a lookout. The men then fled in the car, going west on Pelham Parkway North towards White Plains Road.

The victim didn't report any injuries following the robbery, and a search for the suspects is ongoing.
