THE BRONX - A Bronx livery cab driver says he's now being extra cautious when picking up passengers after being attacked Thursday by a passenger who refused to pay his $10 fare.

Carlos Rosario suffered a black eye when he was allegedly punched in the face 10 times by Wilfredo Castro after he stopped the car and asked Castro to pay his fare. Rosario tells News 12 The Bronx he's been a cab driver for over two years and had never been attacked while on the job.

Castro was arrested and appeared in court last week. He faces several charges including assault and theft of services.
