What is happening in New York City?!
According to a report from The New York Post, five people brutally attacked a New York City cab driver in broad daylight in the middle of the street last week; the horrific event was captured on camera.
From The New York Post:
The horrific footage shows three women and two men repeatedly striking the 60-year-old cabbie with shoes and closed fists near Sixth Avenue and West 34th Street on July 19.
The male driver attempts to avoid their blows and bends down to pick up an item off the street, but is continuously pummeled.
He is knocked off balance and slumps along the side of his cab as one of the women strikes him several times more and kicks him in the chest, according to the video.
The victim tries to protect his head with his hands as onlookers watch without getting involved.
The woman is pulled off by one of the men before the clip ends.
He was taken in an ambulance to New York University Hospital in stable condition.
Police said the cab driver and the individuals got into an argument before the brutal beatdown.
Two of the suspects — 35-year-old Howard Colley and 51-year-old Natalie Morgan, both of Brooklyn — were arrested at the scene, according to cops.
The NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission also condemned the vicious assault.
“Our city’s hardworking drivers brave the streets every day to get us where we need to go, and violence against them is totally unacceptable and illegal,” spokesperson Jason Kersten said in a statement.
“Our Driver Support Unit is in contact with the driver and offering him assistance.”
