Cab driver found fatally stabbed; Police looking for suspect

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department is looking for the attacker of a 27-year-old for-hire cab driver who was found fatally stabbed in his car.

Police say the car was parked on a Bronx roadway around 9 p.m. Saturday. The driver was inside, with stab wounds to his neck and chest.

The New York Times reported the driver, Ganiou Gandonou, was a for-hire driver with Uber, but it was unclear if he had been driving on a job at the time.

An Uber spokesman, Grant Klinzman, told the Times his death was “a horribly tragic incident.”

A group that represents for-hire drivers is offering a $3,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
