Two 20-year-old men and one teenage girl have been arrested by police and are facing charges in connection with the deadly beating of a cab driver in Queens on Saturday, according to the NYPD.
Police say they are still looking for two other teenage girls in connection with the attack.
Austin Amos, 20, has been charged with manslaughter, gang assault, assault and theft of services. Nickolas Porter, 20, is charged with gang assault and theft of services.
A 15-year-old girl, who has not been named because of her age, has been charged with gang assault and theft of services as well.
Police say Amos and Porter both turned themselves in Thursday morning.
According to the NYPD, cab driver Kutin Gyimah, 52, was attacked after he chased a group of passengers who didn't pay their fare.
Police Gyimah was found laying on the roadway with trauma to the back of his head when officers arrived at the corner of Beach 54 Street and Arverne Boulevard in Edgemere just before 6:30 a.m.
Gyimah was transported to Saint John's Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased, according to police.
His family and their supporters called on the other suspected attackers to surrender to police Thursday evening at a rally.
"My husband was a good man. He was everything we had. He was my children's hero, he was my backbone,” Abigail Gyiham, Kutin’s wife, said.
Kutin came to the U.S. from Ghana 15 years ago and leaves behind his wife and four children.
Taxi drivers and members of the industry also called for swift prosecution of the suspects.
“It’s very difficult to understand why five young people attacked a senior to take his money,” said President of the NYS Federation of Taxi Drivers Fernando Mateo.
The owner of the taxi garage where Gyimah worked has covered the funeral expenses and launched a fundraiser that has collected more than $120,000 for the grieving family.
