Bronx Thugs Rob Cabbie
By Dan Gesslein
BRONX– A Bronx Bat Man threatened to beat an Uber driver during a bizarre daylight robbery.
Cops released surveillance video of the suspects- one of the men is seen wielding a baseball bat.
The bizarre incident took place on April 7 at around 6 pm in Williamsbridge just outside Eastchester Heights. When the Uber driver drove his two passengers to the corner of Seymour Avenue and Boston Road, the driver got into a heated exchange with one of the passengers.
That passenger walked around to the driver’s side, threw open the door and yanked the driver’s cellphone from the center console. When the driver exited the vehicle to stop the robber, the second passenger threatened him with a baseball bat.
The two robbers fled but not before their image was captured on surveillance video.
The two suspects are said to be between the ages of 15 and 20.
