Police are looking for a suspect wanted for the robbery of a cab driver in Long Island City last month.

The suspect got into the yellow cab on Aug. 30 in Manhattan at 46th Street and Fifth Avenue at noon, according to authorities.

He then requested to go to 45th Road and 23th Street, and upon the taxi’s arrival, he threatened the 33-year-old driver with a gun and demanded money, police said. The victim complied, and the suspect was able to flee with an undetermined amount of money.

Officers from the 108th Precinct responded. There were no reported injuries, and the suspect’s photo was captured from a dashboard camera in the cab.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
