YONKERS, N. Y. -- The state organization representing taxi cab drivers is offering a $3,000 reward for help in finding the person responsible for a Wednesday, March 23 stabbing and carjacking in Yonkers that left a cab driver in critical condition, according to News 12.

Police say 40-year-old driver Cristian Amparo picked up a rider around 6 p.m. on North Broadway. An argument broke out in the car, and the rider stabbed the driver in the face and neck, then took off with the car, News 12 says.
