Police say a livery cab driver fought off a pair of knife-wielding robbers in the Bronx Sunday afternoon, and authorities are now looking for the alleged suspects.

Police say the driver picked up a man and woman in Harlem around 4 p.m. Sunday.

About halfway through the ride, police say the woman placed a knife to the driver's throat and demanded cash.

The driver fought back and was slashed on the arm, according to police.

The two suspects ran away, and police are asking the public's assistance in identifying them.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
