Cabbie robbed

It was an un-fare start to 2011: A thug robbed a cabbie of his cash as he was being driven through Canarsie New Year’s morning.

The cabbie told police that he was rolling toward the corner of E. 83rd Street and Avenue K at 6:10 am when the 34-year-old thief punched him in the face and made off with $50.

But he didn’t have any time to spend his loot — cops caught up with him a short time later and charged him with robbery.

Where: East 83rd Street and Avenue K
