NYPD: Help us solve cabbie robbery

Brooklyn Daily

Cops are looking to question a man in connection with a Mapleton cab robbery on March 24.

The victimized cab driver, 44, told police that he picked up the suspect on Bay 28th Street near 86th Street at 6:10 am and drove him to 21 Avenue and 66th Street, where the thug allegedly drew a firearm and demanded the cabbie hand over of his hard-earned fares.

The thief fled on foot, leaving the victim uninjured.

Investigators from the 62nd Precinct said they are hoping that a man they have identified as 25-year-old Thomas Sancimino may answer some questions about this robbery. Sancimino is described is 5-foot-5 and weighs about 165-pounds, an NYPD spokesman said.

Anyone with information regarding Sancimino’s whereabouts or this robbery is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-8477.

Reach reporter Colin MIxson at or by calling (718) 260-4514.
