Police arrested two livery cab drivers after they got into an altercation with a man at JFK Airport Monday.

Two livery cab drivers were arrested after a man accused one of them of trying to stab him as the three fought at  John F. Kennedy International Airport Monday afternoon, Port Authority police said.

The victim told police that during an altercation between the cabbies and himself outside of Terminal 8 about 4:30 p.m., one of the men, Wayne Walker, 41, started to chase and threaten him with a knife.

After officers at the scene told the other driver, Junior Rowe, 30, to stop, he allegedly escaped in his Ford Taurus. Rowe almost struck the officers as he sped off, police said.

When Rowe was forced to stop in traffic, he was removed from his car and arrested by police, according to officials.

The weapon, described in detail by the victim, was allegedly found on the floor of Walker’s car. He was also arrested, police said.

No one was injured during the incident and no flights were delayed.

Rowe, of Woodhaven, was charged with attempted assault on a police officer, menacing, reckless endangerment, obstructing governmental administration and disorderly conduct, police said. Walker, a Springfield Gardens resident, was charged with menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.
