Police said they are searching for a man and woman in connection with an assault that occurred in Flushing on Feb. 17.
Approximately 15 minutes after midnight, the two individuals entered a taxi in the vicinity of Latimer Place and Linden Place. The driver insisted that the passengers pay the fair in full prior to departure.
The male passenger protested and proceeded to strike the driver in the head with a glass bottle, causing pain and swelling to his right eye, police said.
The two individuals fled the taxi and fled in an unknown direction. The man was described as a five-foot-six-inch black man who weighed 150 pounds and had a full beard. He was last seen wearing a hooded sweat jacket with a baseball cap. The woman had long, dark curly hair.
