Suspect wanted for at least 4 livery cab thefts in the Bronx

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Police are searching for a thief wanted for stealing several livery cars in the Bronx.

Police say the suspect carjacked at least four livery drivers over the course of one week.

In each case police say the suspect is armed with a knife or gun and forces the driver to take him to locations in the Bronx and Yonkers.

Once he's dropped off at his destination, he forces the driver out of his car and takes off.

In a fifth incident this past Monday the driver resisted and the suspect fled empty handed.

The NYPD issued the following description:

Male, dark skin, medium complexion, approximately 5'6", 180lbs. to 200lbs., with a full beard. He was last seen wearing a gray long-sleeved sweatshirt, and black Yankees baseball hat.
