A livery cab driver allegedly fatally stabbed a drunk man and wounded another drunk man who tried to hail him for a ride early this morning in Queens. According to cops, the two men stopped the livery cab driver around 4:50 a.m. on Roosevelt Avenue in Woodside early Saturday. A 26-year-old man was found with a fatal stab wound to the chest, while the 33-year-old other man had a stab wound to the torso. The second man is in stable condition at Elmhurt Hospital.
According to the Post, the driver had stopped for the men, but then reconsidered after noticing they were drunk and refused to let them inside his car. There was a verbal exchange, then the driver got out of the car, pulled out a long knife, and stabbed the 33-year-old first; the 26-year-old was fatally stabbed while trying to intervene.
No arrests have been made as of yet.
