Women attack, carjack cab driver in Fort Lauderdale

Cab driver says 2 young women stole $200, his cab

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A cab driver says two young women attacked him and stole his cab Wednesday afternoon in Fort Lauderdale.

The Intercity Taxi driver, 59-year-old Jose Gutierrez, said he picked up the two women at 4950 North Ocean in Fort Lauderdale for a trip to North Miami.

Gutierrez said the women told him they needed to pick up some clothes from a home somewhere near Southwest 14th Avenue.

When he parked, Gutierrez said the women attacked him, first by using a rope to choke him and then beating him with their bare fists.

Gutierrez claims the two took $200, pulled him out of his cab and drove away in it, later ditching the cab several blocks away.

Gutierrez said the girls were about 25 years old.
