Livery cab drivers on edge after rise in robberies

Livery cab drivers are on edge after a rise in robberies across the borough.

Police say in the past few weeks, three drivers have been robbed.

Investigators say there is a pattern behind the robberies involving the suspect wrapping something around the neck of the driver and then demanding the cash.
