THE BRONX - The NYPD is looking for a man who they say has robbed multiple livery cab drivers in Port Morris.

On June 5, police say the suspect and an unidentified female hopped aboard a taxi from Manhattan and took it to East 134th Street and Willow Avenue. Once there, police say the suspect reached through the cab's partition and stole the driver's bag, which contained $700 in cash and credit cards.

Last Friday, police say the suspect stole a cash-filled bag from another cab driver. The next day, the suspect allegedly threatened a third driver with a knife and made off with his wallet and cellphone.

No injuries were reported in any of the incidents.
