Cops Want Info
By Joan Ward George
Beach 60 Street was the scene of a robbery and kidnapping Monday night around 8 p.m. when a livery cab stopped for his fare. The man entering the cab pulled out a gun, and according to police, ordered the driver to turn over all of his cash and to get into the trunk of the vehicle.
The perp kept the cabbie captive for nearly three hours, before the victim escaped and called police from a location within the confines of the 105 Precinct. The victim was unharmed.
Detectives from the 100 Precinct are on the look out for a male Hispanic, 5 ft. 7 inches, 175 pounds in his late twenties. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Detective Kinard at 318-4223.
