Broward County deputies say a transgendered female pulled a knife of a cab driver recently after he picked up the passenger at the Oakland Park Flea Market.
According to the cabbie the suspect said, “I need money. If you don’t give me money, I’m going to start cutting things.”
The driver escaped just before the suspect tried to stab him, the sheriff's office says.
According to investigators the suspect then began to stab the cab’s seats, surveillance camera and credit card machine.
The cabbie's backpack containing personal items and forty dollars in cash were taken.
The sheriff's office describes the suspect as approximately 25-35 years of age; 5’11” to 6” tall, with a medium build, and dressed in a black lace top with white shorts.
