HOLLIS — Police were seeking a man who robbed a livery cab driver on Oct. 6, and were asking the public for any information that might help the search.

Police said that a 50-year-old man was driving his livery cab at about 3:20 p.m. and picked up a man who hailed him near the corner of 195th Street and Jamaica Avenue. The man got inside the car and then punched the driver in the face, also punching the windshield, according to the NYPD. Police said he took about $200 in cash from the car before fleeing away from the scene east on Jamaica Avenue. The cab driver refused medical attention.

Police released a photo of the suspected attacker, saying he was between 23 and 27 years old, weighing about 140 to 155 pounds, and was about 6 feet tall with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a sport jacket with white trim and a Caesar haircut.

Police encouraged anyone with information to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS, or to submit tips online at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
