On Sunday a little after midnight this guy at caught a ride from a livery driver near the Ferry Terminal on Staten Island. He had the driver take him all the way out to Mariners Park on the other side of the Island, then started hitting him in the head. They both tumbled out of the car around Netherland near South Avenue, and the perp came up with a knife and stabbed the driver, took his money, and ran off. (The driver went to the hospital in stable condition.)
The assailant is thought to be 20-25 years old, white or Hispanic, 5’6″ with slight facial hair. If you know anything about it, NYPD wants you to call 800-577-TIPS, log on to WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or text 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
