Cabbie clash

A thief pulled a knife on a cabbie during a rolling mugging on May 20.

The victim told police that he picked up his passenger at Shore Road and 82nd Street just before 11 pm, but the man was full of inconsistencies, first asking to go to 79th Street and Fifth Avenue, then claiming that he didn’t know where he wanted to go.

The thief finally settled on 78th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues, where he flashed his knife.

“Give me your money or I’ll cut you,” he said.

The cabbie tried to escape, but the perp caught up with the hack after a brief chase, cutting the man’s hand and robbing him of $50.

Where: 633 78th Street
