A cab driver in Wallkill says he was threatened at knifepoint Friday morning, but he escaped to a local store unharmed.
The driver, whose name isn?t being released, responded to a call for a pick-up at the Middletown Village Apartments. According to authorities, three men entered the cab and one pulled out a knife.
The dispatcher at Syndicate Taxi, where the cab driver works, says his colleague came out of the attack shaken, but not injured.
